How Do Things Move? Prep Investigation
During our Prep Integrated Studies program, the children have been looking at the question ‘How do different things move?’
As part of our class activities, the students have been testing, comparing and recording information as to how certain objects move, in terms of rolling, sliding, spinning and bouncing. The children have also been able to apply their knowledge and understanding during our 'Investigation' sessions, where they have been able to build different marble runs.
During this time, the students have been provided with the opportunity to share their constructions with the class, and to also identify the different strategies they have employed in order to build a successful marble run. Through this Integrated Studies topic, the children have been able to continue to build their Learning Power Muscles of 'Resilience', 'Perseverance' and 'Resourcefulness'.
