Wheels and axles

This resource focusses on exploring shape, nets, wheels and axles. This activity uses pupil’s prior knowledge of nets to make a base for a vehicle. It then introduces the use of axles and wheels to enable the car to move. It could be used at key stage 1 to develop understanding of the use of axles and wheels in...

Making a car body

This resource encourages pupils to make a card model of a car body from a net. Pupils will learn about nets, wheels and axles. They will combine these technologies to make the base and body for a vehicle made from card. This activity introduces and builds on knowledge of nets to make a complex three-dimensional...

Testing a car's performance
