In our Edgar Allan Poe Machine we are using 6 simple machines. We are using a wheel and inclined ramp and axle when a toy train goes down a slanted ramp. We are using a pulley when a ball rolls into a bucket on one side of a pulley, pulling the other side up releasing another smaller ball. We are using a lever when we have scissors cut a rope and we use a wedge when a ball hits the wedge and the wedge breaks a velcroed cloth. Finally we have an example of a screw when a marble rolls down a screw ramp.
