  • Science lesson on gears

    , Oct 20th
    • The submarine slide is confusing. The forces of gravity and engine drive are both shown to be acting in the same direction when they are actually perpendicular. The same can be said of upthrust (buoyancy) and water resistance. It would all be much clearer if the submarine were traveling across the picture rather than towards the camera.

      There are numerous small textual errors in the other slides ("one gear speeds up to slows down the next gears", "the town wheels")

      The worksheet shows a whisk, presumably to illustrate gears. The image chosen, however, shows a whisk with no moving parts - it doesn't use gears, pulleys or levers. The hammer is drawn so that the key feature, the claw for removing nails (a lever), is obscured from view.

    • Hi Glebe_5H,
      Thank you so much for letting us know about this one. I'll get this resource checked right away!

  • On slide 4 - the forces appear with the main slide - I think they should appear afterwards like on slide 3, otherwise if you ask the question on the slide, the answers are already there.

  • I'm going to use this with my Year 1s for our DT work this half term. So might be a little simplistic for Year 5!

    • We have another powerpoint aimed specifically at Y5 in progress, this one has been included in the category as it could serve as a basic introduction :o).

  • A little simplistic but would be a good starting point for a non DT/Science teacher. OK for a brief recap and introduction but needs more ummppff.
