Billy Carts Incursion

Our inquiry topic at the moment is called Smooth Moves. We are exploring how forces and motion affect movement.

To learn more about this topic, we had a special incursion about billy carts today. We had lots of fun learning with our instructor from Supreme Incursions, Andy.

Students were involved in a rotation of activities providing them with the skills and knowledge to safely build and drive a billy cart.

The four rotations were:

Design: designing a billy cart. Creativity was encouraged!


Workshop: building an object out of different materials.


Construction: making a billy cart from start to finish.


Racing: driving a billy cart safely.


During the incursion the students learnt about using tools, driving techniques, force, motion, teamwork and more.

After we finished the four rotations, we had a race between two teams – boys versus girls!

Watch the video to see us enjoying the billy cart incursion. The race is at the end of the clip!


Here are some photos from the incursion.
