May the FORCE Be With You

We’ve been learning about FORCES in Science class.

What is a force?

What are different types of forces?

A force is a Push or a Pull on an object. We see forces in our every day lives. A few weeks ago we combined drama class and Science and were asked to demonstrate in our Teams some of the types of forces we’ve been learning about.

  1. Friction
  2. Tension
  3. Gravity
  4. Compression
  5. Magnetic
  6. Muscular

Today, we were looking specifically at MAGNETIC force. We talked about where we use magnetic force in our lives…this is what we came up with:

We tested various objects in our classroom to see whether they were magnetic or not. We also learned about a really cool train in China that uses magnetic force in a unique way. Have a look at the video below to learn a little bit about the MagLev Train. MagLev means Magnetic Levitation.

Pretty cool, huh?

What type of FORCE do you think you use the most in your life?
