Returning tin

This downloadable document contains instructions for an intriguing student practical activity concerning energy conservation and transformation.

The activity involves the construction of a cylinder that when rolled away across the floor, slows, stops and returns.

This device is commonly known as a ‘comeback can’ or ‘returning tin’.

Different types of motion

This downloadable student activity investigates velocity and acceleration.

The resource is an MS Word document that details a practical activity that focuses on investigating constant velocity and accelerated motion using ticker timers and dynamics trolleys in the laboratory.

The resource can also be used as student worksheets for the activity.

Needs of living things - ScienceWeb

This online resource is a unit for Foundation Year students on the needs of living things.

Through the first-hand experience of a guest presenter, Foundation students identify ways in which people look after a pet to meet its basic needs. Focus questions help identify what senses the animal uses to help meet those needs. Students use the experience to create a model of a pet and identify how they would meet its needs.
