Do you want to find out more about forces? Well come to Year 3! 3B and 3M used the climbing frame and outdoor equipment to investigate different types of forces. We tried using a pulling force to climb up the ramp, the climbing wall and across the cargo net. In contrast, we used a pushing force to travel down the slide and move the tricycles and scooters across the playground.
Shantelle, from 3M, also added that “the force of gravity pulls us towards the Earth.” We experienced this particularly when sliding down the pole.
Amber, from 3B, commented “We learnt lots about forces, it was great!”
Here are some photos which show us using pushing and pulling forces:
