Through hands-on activities students identify forces that act at a distance and those that act in direct contact and investigate how different-sized forces affect the movement of objects.
They will explore why balls roll? Why apples fall from trees? Why some things slide across ice but not on carpet? What makes our bikes stop when we brake? We will explore all types of forces including friction, gravity and pushes and pulls when we exercise, ride bicycles and drive cars.
This week, one of our experiments was to explore the forces present when playing a range of everyday games.
Can you see all the forces at play?
