Introducing Brackitz Education Pulleys & Cranks

Brackitz Gears

By adding the Pulleys & Cranks stack to your Structures Kits, students can explore how to make things that will haul, lift, slide and move up and down, as part of STEM and STEAM learning. Students can build zip lines that stretch more than 4 feet in length!  Includes pulleys, axles, hubs, hook, cranks, and string. The budding engineers in your classes will have fun building and cranking contraptions that haul, lift, slide and move up and down. Find activities and resources in the Lesson Plans & Resources section. A sturdy but lightweight bin keeps the pieces organized. 
Pulleys are some of the earliest classical Simple Machines. You can read more about the different types of pulleys and get ideas for your classroom.  Simple Machines are any of the basic mechanical devices for applying a force, such as an inclined plane, wedge, or lever and are a great way to add STEAM learning to your History lesson from the 3rd Century with Archimedes or the Renaissance when Simple Machines were defined.
Even the youngest learners can build and explore shapes, objects, and structures with Brackitz Pulleys and Cranks. These early learning experiences help children learn to solve problems, reason spatially and build critical thinking skills. Brackitz sparks emerging language and communications too, as children talk about what they’re building. For center-based, small group and individual activities, Brackitz captivate kids. Lesson plans and activities for PreK learners make it easy for teachers to introduce early STEAM learning successfully.
