Forces are pushes and pulls in a particular direction.
Watch the first animation on the link where Seymour Science and friends look at basic forces.
All forces move something.
Push - moves something away from you eg. a swing in a playground
Pull - moves something towards you eg. closing a door
Twist - moves something either away from or towards you eg. opening or closing a bottle
The harder you apply one of these forces, the further the object will move.
Match up the forces (Follow link above)
Drag and drop to match the images to the type of force they are showing.
Push, pull or twist?
Go around your home and ask your children if they can find any examples where they need to push, pull or twist something.
Please send us pictures of you showing a force! You might be the star of our next blog post!
Helping at home challenge: Today we would like you to put a 5 minute timer on, how much tidying or cleaning can you do in 5 minutes? Ready… steady…. Go!
