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