Mr Zippy's Trainers

Rate this resource

This ASE interactive animation looks at materials and their properties and forces and how they are applied to a real life situation. It requires children to choose aspects of trainers that will keep Mr. Zippy's feet dry and help him to run fast. The students then design their own trainer on screen using 'drag and drop', in styles and colours of their choice. The finished trainer can be printed out and displayed.
