Toys- Investigating Forces

We have continued to explore the forces which make toys move.

On Friday, we experimented with toy cars. We tried blowing, pushing our car with one finger or  with  one  hand across a table. We found out that:

“The harder the push the further the car moved.” – Anna

We made a car with a partner and tried using a ramp. The ramp made the cars go further and faster and the heavier the car the further it travelled. Some of our car designs worked well but some crashed. We talked lots about what made one design work well whilst others were trickier.

Did we enjoy being investigators?

I loved it! – Annie

A thumbs up from all!
