Ready, Teddy, Go

The forces and motion workshop

Forces, movement and motion are investigated by our popular teddy bear team in a series of fun and engaging activities for the whole class. Our inquisitive bears reveal the principles of gravity, friction and movement demonstrated through challenges that connect science concepts to the real world.

Learning Outcomes

  • Explain that a force is something that makes objects move
  • Name pushing, pulling, gravity and friction as examples of forces
  • Recall that floating and sinking are the results of forces from water and gravity
  • Describe that gravity is a force pulling objects to the ground
  • Describe that friction is a force acting between objects and slowing them down
  • Recognise that making predictions is a good scientific method of experimenting
