|You have probably seen a wheel and axle on a car. The axle turns when you put force on the wheel. Can you think of a different place that you might find a wheel and axle on a car besides what you see in this picture? How about the steering wheel or radio dials?|
|In this picture, this girl is pulling a wagon that has wheels and axles. This simple machine makes it easier to move these items. She would have a lot more work to do if she didn't have the wagon.|
