Grade 7 Semester 1 Activities

This year seems to be flying by! Here are some photos taken during class from the first semester. Students really enjoyed the challenges where they needed to design a paper airplane and a car during the ‘Forces and Motion’ unit. These activities gave them opportunities to design, test, redesign and persevere to try to make the models travel the furthest and for the plane, hit the centre of the target. The inertia activities had the students thinking about why forces enable us to perform certain ‘party tricks’ like pulling the tablecloth away from underneath objects. Lots of learning with a lot of fun!
