60 high-interest, real photographs are used for this photo sort. Students will be able to analyze push and pull forces with these photos. They may even discover different ways to use the objects, making this an open-ended, discussion-based activity.
There are 21 images that primarily show a push force, 21 images that primarily show a pull force, and 18 images that show objects that often require push and pull forces.
The images are varied and allow you to create differentiated sorts for students based on the number or cards included in the sort or the difficulty of the objects. You can set up some sorts for just push or pull forces and other sorts to include the both category.
