Pulleys make it easier to lift heavy things by changing the direction of the force we apply. (e.g., Instead of lifting up things we pull them down) by investigating objects and materials by using all of their senses.
Bing and Bong design gadgets to discover the properites of magnets, springs, wheels, levers, pulleys, balance, friction, plumb-lines, gears, and structures.
Bing and Bong arrive dressed to go fishing. However, the metal cover over the fishing hole is too heavy to move….until Bing and Bong try a pulley.
With magnets on the ends of their lines to attract the Metal Fish, they get right to business. But while Bong is having all the luck, Bing can’t seem to catch anything.
Then Bong snags a fish so large that Bong cannot reel it in! Both Bing and Bong try to pull it out of the water, but it is no use – until Bing remembers the nearby pulley!
Bing sets up the pulley so that all of them together can finally bring in that fish. Success! After a proud photo opportunity, the fish returns to the fishing hole and Bing and Bong head home.
Bing and Bong put magnets to good use. Now it’s your turn to spend time with magnets.
