Forces Lesson Ideas Lesson Plan
Three lesson ideas on the topic of Forces with supporting activity sheets. Covering: air resistance, friction and gravity.
How Do Levers Work? Video
Children investigate how levers work, using tug of war equipment. When the girls are unevenly matched with the boys, they discover that moving the rope gives them more pulling power with less effort.
Magnetic Pennies Lesson Plan
To explore the magnetic attraction of a range of different magnets on 1p and 2p coins. For a more inquiry-based activity, encourage the class to respond to a series of challenges. For example, how many pennies can you attract to the magnet?
The Force Factor Interactive
Put your knowledge to the test. Can you find the cause and direction of the forces in the different scenarios?
Each scenario has a force question and the aim is to find the right arrows and missing words.
