Jack and Jill The Untold Story Written by: Mandy Tarvainen Meet Jack and Jill…… We all know the story, Jack and Jill went up the hill, to fetch a pail of water Jack fell down and broke his crown, and Jill came tumbling after. Of course you believe that this was the sad end for poor Jack and Jill, but that is where you are wrong; although somewhat disheartened, our relentless duo pursued a different course of action. They knew that a simple stroll up the hill was not going to work, so something else must be done! Now, Jack and Jill were smart children. They always paid close attention to their teacher. It just so happened that they were studying simple machines in Science. Their teacher told them there were six different kinds; the wedge, screw, inclined plane, wheel and axle, the lever, and the pulley. Wedge Wheel & Axle Screw Pulley Lever So, Jack had a brilliant idea about how to reach the top of the hill. “How about a catapult”?, said Jack, “That’s right!” said Jill, “a catapult is the simple machine, called a lever”. So, Jack decided, “You could sit on one side, Jill, and I could launch you up to the well”. As Jill imagined the possible results, she realized that she would end up with more than a broken crown, or a tumble down the hill. “Ummm…. Let’s try something else Jack”. So, now the catapult idea was out! Back to square one. The children were still determined, and Jack had yet another brilliant idea! “We could build a wagon!” “We could use the hill as an inclined plane. The wagon would include wheels and axles, as well as screws to put it together!” said Jack So, now the story is a little different, Jack and Jill went up the hill, to fetch a pail of water….. They both came down, no broken crowns, and everyone was happy ever after! The End!
