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!

 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.

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

 

 Oh good, that's how I would understand it better, but I didn't mean to "jump the gun" there.  :-)

I cannot cut and paste, but type in simple chassis design in google and see what comes up.   There were several things to look at.   Print one off and see if you guys can imitate it.
