Forces used in the Circus - Please Help!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by goobylou, Jan 1, 2011.

  1. Happy New Year to you all!!
    Has anyone ever linked together forces and the circus for Year 4s? I'm currently trying to do it - but failing miserably!!
    I'm a PGCE student and going to be teaching in just over 1 week - I just wondered how people would link it - any guidance would be great!!
    Thank you in advance

    Are you using QCA 4E Friction? If so you could possibly make links such as...
    Forcemeter - link to strongman pulling things (investigation could be to find the best flooring for the circus to help the strongmen look even stronger!!)
    Friction - link to unicycle riders (along the high wire/on the ground)
    Water resistance - link to high divers!
    Air resistance - link to human cannonball and the parachute he needs to land safely!
