Interactive video lesson plan for: Sesame Street: Rube Goldberg Machines!

Activity overview:

A clock strikes twelve pulling a string just tight enough to move the marble sitting on the string, sending to gently topple one domino, collapsing a bunch of other dominoes, that eventually fall off a counter and trigger a lever to launch a badminton birdie up onto the head of one of those vintage drinking birds, causing the bird to dip down and tap your mommy on her shoulder reminding her to press the play button on this video because you're much too young to be using a computer alone.
