this project starts with student looking at Rube Goldbergs original drawings. we also look at YouTube videos of Rube Goldberg machines. students then start by making to preliminary sketches in there sketchbook. Designs must have 15 steps and use all six simple machines that are investigated in science class. the final drawings also include written directions and labels. Once they're finished with the drawing students will create an actual Rube Goldberg machine using still life materials in the art class.
