Lesson plan

Structures and force challenges

Summary
Give students a series of challenges, some individual some requiring teamwork.
Science content
Physics: Motion and Forces, Newton’s Laws, Gravity (K, 2, 6)
Procedure

Do each challenge in turn.

I also added in a pulley challenge: students were given two pulleys and a long length of rope, and asked to make a pulley system to move a bag from one end of an area to another. They worked together, with help from me, to understand how a simple pulley works.
