Vocabulary for unit

(10 pages)

Vocabulary to be used during this unit

Cards of words that may be used throughout this unit (20 cards / words 2 on each landscape sheet)

Forces and movement

(11 slides)

To demonstrate knowledge which forces are being used

PowerPoint presentation using animations to discuss which forces and movements are being used on each slide

Changing the shapes of objects

 (1 page)

To know that sometimes pushes and pulls change the shape of objects

Practise changing the shape of objects by pulling, stretching twisting pushing. Record the outcome what you did, what force was used

Changing the shape

 (1 page)

To know that sometimes pushes and pulls change the shape of objects

Experiment wit the given objects , predict and record whether they will change / not change / bounce back

Pushes and Pulls

(1 page)

that pushes or pulls can make things speed up or slow down or change direction

Explain what happens when you push / pull  various objects and if they hit another object

Faster or slower

 (1 page)

to explain how to make familiar objects move faster or slower

Record on the sheet how you can make the objects shown go faster or slower or how you can go faster or slower on certain objects.

What makes things move?

 (1 page)

To suggest questions about ways in which different objects move

Explain on the chart how the various objects move

Moving bricks

(1 page)

To suggest questions about ways in which different objects move

 

Moving bricks in different ways which way is easier / more difficult, which is the best surface?

 Making things move

(1 page)

To measure distance of movement using standard or non-standard units

To decide what measurements to take

To make measurements and record these in a prepared table

Chart to say how they moved the given objects and record the distance they moved decide on the unit to measure by.

Making things move on different surfaces

(1 page)

To suggest questions about ways in which different objects move

 

Moving things on different surfaces. Recording which surface and haw far the objects moved

How far did the car move?

( 1 page)

To measure distance of movement using standard units

To decide whether their comparison was fair

Put books under a ramp; let a toy car go from top. Measure distance moved using a ruler. Record findings

Stop a ball

 (2 pages)

To suggest a question to test and predict what will happen

 

Record the first few tests. Suggest which other materials to roll a ball into to see what happens. Predict first then test. (2 levels)

Make a block graph

(2 pages)

To use results in a table to draw a block graph

Use the results from experiments to make block graphs to show the results
