Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used when starting work about forces where the pupils could watch the clip and be asked to see how many forces they can identify. It could then be used to illustrate the basic ideas of pushes, pulls, twists and turns. The clip could help to identify forces such as gravity, air and water resistance and friction acting upon objects.
