Agricultural Mechanics Master | Learning Activity
Welcome to the wonderful world of machines and mechanics! Chances are you’ve been in a car at some point this week. You’ve probably seen a grown-up using a kitchen gadget, such as an electric mixer or a toaster. We see machines every day! They make many of the tasks we do easier. But did you know that farmers and ranchers rely on machines every day to get their job done? Machines help farmers and ranchers care for animals and work the land while conserving our resources. Many of the complex machines we know today have evolved because of the understanding of six simple machines: a pulley, a lever, a wedge, a wheel and axle, an inclined plane and a screw.
