Forces in Action at a Theme Park

This interactive resource is suitable for use with a whole class on an interactive whiteboard or individual use bt students in a computer suite. It looks at forces in the context of a theme park and covers gravity, friction, stretching, compression, magnetism, balanced and unbalanced forces. The activity has questions and feedback all the way through as students gather facts about force. At the end they are asked to apply what they have learned to recognise where rides are unsafe. The activity provides a printable certificate then gives examples of the application of knowledge abour forces is relevant in the real world. This is an the best resource I have seen on forces for students aged 9 - 11.
