Atwood in Motion

The second grade classes at Atwood Primary School have been learning about Force and Motion.

The children have had fun exploring the concepts of force, motion, push, pull, friction, and gravity through a variety of close reads and experiments. They’ve built catapults to launch marshmallows and pompoms as they took a closer look at push and pull; they did the ‘Great Race’ and tested toy vehicles on ramps with different materials to see friction at work; they constructed their own egg-drop contraption as they tested their hypothesis on gravity, and balanced and unbalanced forces.

The children have really loved this unit of study and have looked forward to these fun and engaging experiments!
