Centripetal and Centrifugal Force!

We talked about Centripetal and Centrifugal force in Year 5 this morning. Once the children understood the the forces, they they put the theory of the balanced forces to the test by nervously spinning a bucket of water above their heads, trusting that centrifugal force would keep them dry, while centripetal force would be trying to get them wet! We then documented our findings on Flipgrid! Children made videos explaining what they had done and what they had learnt and where the forces can be seen in action in real life scenarios!
