      The following site provides diagrams for the three basic classes of levers.

      Have kids explore and discuss how almost every hand-tool or implement that we use in everyday life utilizes the principle of a lever in one way or another. Go on to experimentally show that levers don’t change the total work required. They only exchange force and distance. See text. Post questions.
