Pushing and Pulling

This online resource is a series of Flash-based interactives intended to support the learning of early years students when investigating the effect of pushing and pulling on stationary objects.

This interactive learning object consists of four major parts.

1. Starter activity—students identify who is pushing, who is puilling and which items can be pushed and pulled.

2. Main session—students explore the effect of the strength of a push on an object and how far it will travel.
