Great resource for kids! All experiments are tailored to the interests of younger students in the hope of increasing engagement within the unit. The magnetism experiment is one of many experiments that students can navigate through on the resource. The site includes "science facts", a glossary and games.

Simple, enjoyable and educational video exploring the concepts; gravity, push and pull. This video briefly touches on the key elements of push and pull using a rock as an example. Again this video emphasises that push and pull does not only occur in living things (a common misconception in young students). Resources that include a visual stimulus are significantly more powerful and result in deeper engagement and understanding of the concept for students. In this case, students will find a cartoon exploring forces more engaging than perhaps a person standing in front of the screen talking about forces.

I thought this was a great resource for teachers who need some more hands on activities. Education Scholastic UK suggests a number of physical activities teachers can organise with their class for exploring Push and Pull forces. 4 activities are suggested and described in detail - simple and concise!

This resource would be very useful for teachers to watch collaboratively before starting a unit of work on pushing and pulling. The video explains the learning process by explaining each key step of the learning process. Starting by accessing prior knowledge is key, the teacher in this video explains how important it is to find out what the students know already, and then to introduce the students to the topic with something they can relate to; a toy train/car. The video demonstrates how the teachers allowed time for students to explore pushing and pulling by "pushing the button on the train" "pulling the car along the ground". - Asking students to use the appropriate language. An extremely useful resource for any teacher! The video also emphasises the fact that the majority of students in this Stage 1 class come from non-english speaking backgrounds, and therefore the lessons are tailored in a way to ensure that the content is understood.
