How Can Force and Heat Cause Change?

Year 4 Incursion

The Year 4 students have been investigating their big question “How Can Force and Heat Cause Change?”. This is part of the inquiry focus on physical science. The students participated in a workshop prepared by Hands on Science. 

In this incursion students investigated different forces to learn more about the relationships between force and motion. They explored the effect of friction, and learnt about the forces of attraction and repulsion between magnets. 

Students were challenged with testing a reaction rocket to investigate air resistance and gravity. The Year 4 students were guided through each step, prompting them to predict, observe and reflect on each activity. The day was was a huge success leaving smiles on the students faces.
