    In this recorded professional learning session, Greta Dromgool and Ted Cizadlo will build your confidence to teach about the Physical World. The New Zealand Curriculum achievement objectives for this area are incredibly broad. By using simple, everyday examples, we will take you step by step through how you can teach the concepts of force and motion.

    Thank you! Love the activity ideas and how well this was broken down.

    The Science Learning Hub’s force and movement concept has a range of articles and activities focusing on the Physical World, and our teacher PLD Physical World – forces provides an outline of our resources linked to topics such as flight and rockets.

    Hands-on learning is so important, especially when teaching abstract concepts – engage students in physics with activities like Investigating pendulums – what matters? and Investigating car safety features.

    An investigation of motion takes you step by step through how to introduce speed and acceleration using an investigative approach.

    The Science Learning Hub team has curated a collection of resources with a focus on force and motion. Log in to make this collection part of your private collection – just click on the copy icon.
