The 7 YO class is in the study of Motion in Science. They learned that time and distance are important to measure speed. Also motion has a different path.
We studied how force (pushes and pulls) can change an object’s motion by using toy cars to discover that pushes and pulls are needed to get a car moving as well as to change the direction of a car.
In our speed trials we were interested in which of the motions each student found to be the fastest or the slowest - walking backwards, jumping, or crawling.
We were also experimenting with collision.
