Magnets and springs-TES PowerPoints
Lesson Year 3 units of work with many PowerPoints.
Forces and magnets-Hamilton Trust free planning
Website Identify pushes and pulls as forces and explore how things move on different surfaces. Find out about attraction and repulsion by magnetic forces and which materials are magnetic. Look at compasses and uses of magnets. Carry out some enquiries using magnets.
Forces and magnets- all TES resources
Website Link to all the forces and magnets resources on the TES.
Super powerful magnets-BBC video
Video A top scientist has invented super strong magnetic grippers. These allow a man to climb the outside of a steel tower. The magnetic grippers were funded by the military who wanted to be able to scale tall buildings unaided.
The Force Factor
Website Put your knowledge to the test. Can you find the cause and direction of the forces in the different scenarios? Each scenario has a force question and the aim is to find the right arrows and missing words.
Forces -Pushes and pulls
Video Forces- Pushes and Pulls videos from BBC Learning Zone
Magnets and their invisible force-BBC video
Video An explanation of how magnets work by using their poles to either attract or repel objects. Only metals which contain iron, nickel or cobalt are magnetic. The two poles which are the same will repel each other, and the two poles which are different will attract each other.
Forces and Magnets
