Pushes and Pulls

Today we started our 'Forces and Magnets’ topic by talking about different types of forces. These included:

  • Pushing
  • Pulling
  • Twisting
  • Magnetic force
  • Gravity
  • Air resistance 
  • Upthrust
  • Spring force
  • Friction

We discussed examples of pulling and pushing and created freeze frames of an action to show each force. We showed our freeze frames to the class, who tried to identify whether the action showed was a pushing or pulling force.
