Children explore GEARS, PULLEYS, LEVERS and WHEELS while they design and build a series of models such as car launcher, raft, measuring car and many more. This program introduces students to basic simple machines in the home and local community.
Investigating energy, force, speed, the effect of friction, reading scales, Fair testing and predicting.
Design and Technology
Investigating gears, wheels, axles and pulleys; working cooperatively in a team; using instructions in 2 dimensions to create 3-dimensional models.
Measurement of distance, time, weight. Counting, calculating, shape and problem-solving.
