In this video, students will learn the most important science fundamentals about forces in this super catchy science song. This song for kids about forces teaches children that a force either pushes or pulls and forces make things move. The video shows many kid-friendly examples of forces and how they push or pull things in the environment. Children push in their chairs in a classroom, pull in a game of tug-of-war, a kite is pushed by the wind to make it fly, children push and pull playground toys. All of these examples are clearly shown on this video with both audio and video telling the children if the force is a push or pull. This video will help children clearly see how forces move things all around them. After seeing this song and video in force, teachers and parents can extend learning about science by observing all different movements in their home and school environment and decide it’s a push and pull.
This video satisfies the K-PS2-1 requirement for kindergarten proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
K-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
