English Homework:
Design A Machine

©1998 Gareth Pitchford

Are there any jobs that you don't like doing around the house?

Are there any tasks that other people in your family don't like doing?

Imagine that you could buy special machines to do the tasks that nobody likes doing. I want you to invent a machine to do one of those tasks.

Draw a picture of your machine and label your picture to show what parts do what. Write down why you've decided to invent the machine and tell me a little bit about how it works.
