Lesson Seven – Push and Pull

This science scheme of work for Key Stage Two gets the children to investigate and record some of the ways of moving objects using a range of different forces. The children can test and illustrate how they might move objects made from different materials using pushing and pulling forces.

Learning Objectives

Compare and group together a variety of everyday materials. Notice that some forces need contact between two objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance.

Learning Outcomes

I can identify and describe materials by their individual properties. I know that some forces need contact to produce movement but that magnetism can act at a distance.

Push and Pull
