Today we are going to be looking at rubber bands and springs. I wonder what they have in common and what is different between them? What are they used for? If you have a rubber band or a spring at home, then it would be great fun to join in with the investigations today by thinking what forces are acting on the rubber band or spring to make them change shape.


Your activities today are to write paragraphs about what forces are in action moving the rubber bands and springs. There are Word Banks to help you with the scientific vocabulary. The pdf file below will guide you through it. Then, you could create an information poster about springs to show us your learning.
