This week in Science we have started looking at our new topic of "Forces and Magnets." We started by mind mapping some ideas of what a "force" is. After darting around a few Star Wars related ideas, we settled on the idea that...
"Forces are pushes or pulls. They are measured in newtons. Unbalanced forces change the way something is moving. The mass of an object is how much matter it contains. The weight of an object is the force caused by gravity pulling down on the mass."
Next week in Science, we are going to be conducting an investigation into forces using a toy car and various different surfaces.
