Any ideas for a fun, standalone science lesson in Yr 1?

Discussion in 'Science' started by amyclare, Mar 19, 2012.

  1. We've pretty much come to the end of our topic on forces, and have one science session left this term. I don't want to use the time for another subject as science gets so little time as it is, so I wondered if anyone had any great ideas for a standalone lesson - or one following on from forces/friction - that I can do with 30 lively but bright year 1s without any other adults being required. Preferably something practical and a little bit fun!

    Thanks! (Posted in primary initially but thought I should come here and ask the specialists too!)

    Could they work in groups? Each group makes a track that is designed to stop a toy car rolling down the track in the shortest distance? You will need to incline the track slightly. Wool, sand, crumpled paper or whatever you have in the classroom for the surface of the track. Just get each group to glue the material onto a long piece of cardboard from a sturdy box. Or do the reverse, who can get their car to go furthest?
