Vertically Challenged

Aimed at primary level, the activities within this pack demonstrate key ideas and concepts used in designing and constructing buildings such as: how levers and pulleys work, the properties of materials and the forces involved in different structures. Activities include: making a lever to lift a grown up, making...

Popular Mechanics: Becoming a Designer of Machines

This resource aimed at upper primary contains a series of lessons which look at the means by which machines (cams, levers, gears and pulleys) transform force into movement. The first lesson provides the context for the project in the form of a story, where students are asked to create a counter to count visitors to...

Aircraft Forces

Produced by Innovate Educate and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire, these materials are aimed at primary school children who are already familiar with the idea of forces as pushes and pulls, and that forces can change the motion of objects. Children think about the types of forces that apply to an aircraft during...

Forces and Air Resistance

Aimed at Key Stage Two this resource, produced by Rolls-Royce contains five activities related to the topic area of forces. Children look at friction, how the force of air resistance affects moving objects, pushing and pulling and directions in which forces act. Each activity includes worksheets and teacher...

Selenia and the Victorian Adventure *suitable for home teaching*

Learn about the forces of air resistance and gravity in this colourful comic aimed at Key Stage Two. Written to promote scientific enquiry, it includes an air resistance investigation to find which is the best shape and size for a parachute. It also focuses on asking...

Forces and Gravity

This resource from Physicists in Primary Schools (PIPS) supports the teaching of forces and gravity at Key Stage Two. A presentation introduces pushes and pulls, gravity and weight, demonstrating forces acting on falling objects and how to measure force using forcemeters. It also looks at gravity on the Moon and...

Forces: may the forces be with you

This resource provides a selection of lesson plans, worksheets and teachers notes relating to forces at Year Five. They include activities in which children find out about gravity, air resistance, water resistance and friction. Children develop their understanding of balanced and unbalanced forces and their effects...

Magnetic Fun and Games

This resource contains six activities that link to Forces and Magnets, they are designed for use with mixed age groups classes of Year 3 and 4. Activities include:

  • exploring the ways forces act on a range of every day objects, including toy cars on different surfaces – comparing movement of vehicles...

Forces and magnets: amazing magnets

This resource provides six lessons on magnets aimed at Year 3. Children are asked to help Mr Andrew Newton of the British Scientific Society  to develop some exciting activities on the theme of Magnetism to delight visitors at their annual science fair.  Using this context they are introduced to the mysteries of...

Forces and Magnets

This resource from Physicists in Primary Schools (PIPS) supports the teaching of magnets at Key Stage Two. A presentation introduces class investigations on magnetic materials and on the forces of attraction and repulsion using bar magnets. It demonstrates how to make a compass and looks at the Earths’ magnetic...
