P for Push and Pull

See what we did for other letters in the Alphabet in Simple Science.

P for Push and Pull
Science Notebook Page (Click the picture to print).

First we did his science notebook page and talked about pushes and pulls.  We read a few books about pushes and pull, and Xander particularly liked Pushes and Pulls: Why it Works.  After talking about them and some examples, I had him demonstrate using play dough.

Push or Pull?

Two bins or containers

Since pushing and pulling were hard to design experiments with, I made up some cards with different types of pushes and pulls (you can print it above).  Then Xander sorted each card into a basket for push and pull.  He did a great job with it and thought it was a lot of fun.

  1. We had so much fun with this activity. Instead of playdoh we made slime which some of my kids played with all day long. These activities are so engaging. Thanks!
