Science and Design in Year 2

This semester in Science, Year 2 students have been exploring the forces of Push and Pull. Through investigations, they observed and gathered evidence about how these forces act in the air, water, and on the ground. Students identified the effects of the pull of gravity and learned that both air and water can ‘push’ an object. They enjoyed integrating their Science unit with Design and Technologies. Students used their knowledge of Push and Pull to design and create their own parachute, with the aim to keep it in the air as long as possible.
