We started our How the World Works unit by sharing our prior knowledge about Movement, Force and Structure. The teachers questions such as ‘what is movement?’, ‘how does it look like?’, ‘can you move?’, ‘what makes things move?’, how can you make something move?’, ‘what makes something moves fast or slow?’ helped us to think and went further with the inquiry.
FINDING OUT AND SORTING OUT
We explored these concepts through various experiences, experiments and explorations.
Fieldtrip to the Science Museum ‘Puspa Iptek’
We found out that movement is created by forces. There are different types of force and they can come in the form of ‘Pushing’ and ‘Pulling’.
Soon we brought these finding and gained knowledge into our playful and fun activities.
Ga: “The ball, rock, the marker and book you have to move it. You have to push it using your hand. I open it” (turned the page of a book).
Ala: “No, kick it!’
Nu: “Pull it. I pull it using my hand.”
Ru: “They pull!” (the magnets).
