Before the lesson
- To look at objects and understand how they move
Pupils should be taught to:
- Explore and evaluate a range of existing products
- Explore and use mechanisms [for example, levers, sliders, wheels and axles] in their products
Pupils needing extra support: Repetition and physical examples of products from the Activity: Levers and linkages.
Pupils working at greater depth: Challenge the children to find items from within the classroom that have levers and linkages, similar to those shown in the Activity: Levers and linkages.
