Okay so I need to Sketch a chassis (frame and wheels of a wagon) ((just typing what the book says) HOW DO I DO THAT???

Yeah stupid question I might get eaten alive for asking...but this science book drives me nuts...I cant wait till we are done Structures and can move on to the solar system!

I would think it wants you to draw a diagram or picture of one! Do you have an example of one to help with knowing how it should look!

We do our best to be kind & not eat anyone alive in this group! There are no stupid questions only stupid answers!

No sample...this book really drives me nuts...I really can not wait till we are through it... but have to teach it to him. I will try googling it I guess...

Does it have to be a sketch?

I guess I would use a picture of one to draw a diagram of it.  Is it for simple machines?  It's probably focusing on the axle and how the axle connects the wheels to the frame.

BUT I would probably have my boys make one out of legos instead.  Then they could see how all the parts fit together and how the axle turns allowing the wheels to turn independently of the frame.

See I am with you building one with Lego's or kin'ex would be more helpful to understand all that!

Would this help?

That's what I was thinking.  Drawing it is pretty cool, but I personally understand machines better when I build a model of them and get to see the parts move.

Oh soon he will be building with legos...just dont know if he has all the peices to make it "move" like this...
