The lever is a simple machine. A lever moves and lifts objects by using force.A lever is made up of a bar and a fulcrum. The bar pivots around the fulcrum. The fulcrum is in the middle and when weight is put on one end it acts like a seesaw. When less force is used to move an object the fulcrum is close to the object. Levers are also found on body parts too. They are your arms and jaw bones. Wow Imagine that!
