Pushing and pulling

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Move animals from a boat to their new home in a zoo. Put them on a cart, then use monkeys to push or pull them up a hill. Use the minimum amount of force needed to move each animal. For example, use a single monkey to push a pelican or use three monkeys to pull a zebra. This learning object is a combination of three objects in the same series that progressively increase in difficulty.

Students investigate the meaning of 'push' and 'pull' forces.
Students apply a force to move an object that is at rest and identify the minimum force needed to move objects having a range of weights.
