Kindergarten: Pushes and Pulls
This is the second of three modules kindergarten will complete this year. This module will take place every day during the students' science time from Feb.24-Mar. 20.
Students will be integrating science with technology, engineering, math, and language arts. They will also be using the Innovator Skills of collaboration, communication, critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving throughout this module.
Students explore and identify forces as pushes and pulls—through books, a scavenger hunt, learning centers, and observation of daily activities. Students identify the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object. Students use the design process to design, build, test, and reflect on a model that can move a heavy load using pushes and/or pulls.
