Balancing Engineering and Science Instruction: Teaching third graders about balanced and unbalanced forces, Jesse Wilcox, Maryah Klapprodt, Jordan Holub, Kysha Van Buskirk, Science and Children, March 2019.

This activity has students solve an engineering problem of moving a marshmallow from the floor to a table. We use this experience to explore how unbalanced forces are necessary to move objects and how simple machines can make tasks easier.
