Activity Overview


The are a wide range of forces in many everyday situations that students might not be aware of. Using a spider map, students will identify and illustrate a range of different types of forces. You can make this activity easier or more challenging by changing the number of rows. Stretch your most advanced students by giving them a contextual constraint, for example, all of their examples of forces need to be found in football. Students should be encouraged to define the type of force in their storyboard alongside each example, but this is not a needed requirement.

Alternatively, print out the example storyboard and cut it up. Students can then match the force type with the visualization.
