Continuing on with forces in Year 5, we looked at levers today. We witnessed how a small force could move a heavy resistance if you used a lever and fulcrum correctly. We even proved it with some of the smallest members of our school vs one of the heaviest! When the children had witnessed this we came back into class and experimented with different weights to put the theory to the test!
