A lever is a simple machine that is used to make lifting a load easier. Watch the video below to find out more.
Then, have a look at the documents underneath that will help you to learn about the different parts of a lever and the three main types of lever. Can you find any examples of levers in your home or that you have used before?
To explore levers and how they work even further, have a go at making your own! There are instructions and ideas in the documents below. It would be great if you could take some photos or draw diagrams of your experiments to share when we are back in school!
