Using this resource group, students learn about a tool often used to lift heavy items, a lever. Sid believes that he has invented the ultimate solution to putting away his toys, later to learn that his invention is actually a simple machine called a lever. He discovers that levers are not only useful for launching toys, but can also help lift up really heavy things. The resource group includes eight video segments, including a live action segment, as well as an associated activity.
