Where can I find online educational games about "simple machines"?

Level: Primary

To locate some suitable online games involving simple machines you could try using a search engine.  One of the search engines we enjoy using on ManyAnswers is Carrot2 which breaks down a question into smaller topics.

The important keywords in your question are simple machines and games.  We tried these keywords as a search in Carrot2 and got these results.   We can then narrow down our results even further by selecting the 'Educational Games' folder to the left side of the screen.

One of the websites that looks good is NeoK12.  This is an educational site that has lots of activities, videos and games around simple machines.  

HOT TIP: Websites that have .com or .co in the address can have good information, but you need to assess how reliable it is. Check the ‘about us’ link on the website, if you can find one. That can tell you what the company’s mission and values are.

Another website that looks good is Edheads.  Click on the Start button to play a game that guides you through the different simple machines (and compound machines too!) that can be found around the home.

Learning Games for Kids has a page with six different simple machines games.

Invention at Play has an 'Invention Playhouse' where you can use different simple machines to guide a ball to its goal.

Finally this Moving Toy Mechanism is a cool interactive activity using simple machines.
