Forces - Movement and Motion
Things that can roll are easier to move. That's why vehicles have wheels.

Forces - Movement and Motion

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with forces of movement and motion.

When looking at forces in science at school you have found out about things moving or being in motion. Cars, people, bikes, planes, animals - they all move by using forces. What makes them go? How do they go? What keeps cars in motion? You can make things move. You can kick a ball, throw a ball or hit a ball with a bat. What do you know about how things move?
