A completely resourced lesson on Physics - Resultant Forces
The starter begins with review of pupil knowledge on forces basics through a quick quiz which prompts initial discussion on what forces are and also the difference between mass and weight.
A class activity is detailed which uses just string and newton meters to carry out a scaled down and safer version of tug-of-war resultant forces. This allows for key conclusion to be drawn from observation relating to resultant forces.
Discussion of real-life contexts allows for statements to be made about resultant forces on moving objects.
Two tasks are provided to consolidate resultant forces of stationary and moving objects - either through a card sort or for the pressed for time a similar task in work sheet form.
Resolving resultant forces is reviewed with the fun activity - resultant forces dance mat. Great activity for the entire class but chose your music carefully.
The lesson finishes with a summary of key conclusion on resultant forces relating to Newtons Laws.
