Year 3/4 Term 3-Push/Pull Projects

For this project, the Year 3/4 students linked  knowledge learnt in their Science Inquiry -investigating and experimenting with the forces of push and pull, and applied it to an art/technology project that used one or both of these forces.

They could choose from six different tasks- 1. a swing in a shoe box; 2. a marble run; 3. a kite; 4. a balloon rocket car; 5; a noodle rocket launcher; or 6. a rope climber.

All tasks involved designing, choosing suitable materials, constructing, testing, evaluating, refining designs and explaining how the force of push, pull or both were used by their object.
