Learn how simple machines (lever, pulley, inclined plane, wedge, wheel and axle, and screw) have played a part in the development of arms and armor. Using examples from the Cleveland Museum of Art's famed Armor Court, students compare different types of armor and discover how they have been used in battle, in sport, and for ornamentation. Students will be able to identify simple machines in everyday objects.
