Being Force Detectives with Science Alive!

On Tuesday we had Science Alive come to our kura to teach our tamariki about Forces.

The session started with the tamariki listening to the story of the three pigs, and given the challenge to work out the best way for the pigs to escape the wolf.

Friction





Push, Pull & Twist






Gravity and Air Resistance






Magnetism









The pigs escaped in the end by putting magnets on the roof of their brick house. The wolf's belt got stuck to the roof, which meant he had to take off his pants. He was so embarrassed he ran away, and never came back again.
