Simple Machines
This series of three interactive, multimedia activities introduce and demonstrate the properties of six simple machines. Specifically, the lessons show how levers, pulleys, inclined planes, screws, wheels and axles, and wedges can reduce the amount of work done by humans. After learning about the characteristics of each classification, users can try to find the simple machines that make up a lawn mower. By inspecting the mower from different angles, several simple machines are revealed and must

J.B. Murray: Writing in Unknown Tongues: Reading Through the Water
Teachers are advised to review content:
J. B. Murray (1908-1988) was a farmer who lived in rural Glascock County, Georgia, near the community of Mitchel.

He described it as "the language of the Holy Spirit, direct from God" and interpreted it using a bottle of water as a focusing device.
