Collaborative Learning : Physics Activities

Title Image

Planets Talk

Description: Planets hold a fascination for many children and we have built on this interest to improve children's speaking and listening skills, as well as their ability to cooperate.

Learning Outcomes: Pupils will be able to name and knowledge of some of their basic characteristics.

Planets Matching

Description: The Planets Matching Game allows pupils to build on their knowledge of the planets as well as improve their speaking and listening skills.

Learning Outcomes: Pupils will have increased their knowledge about the planets.

Energy Chains

Description: Identifying different types of energy and how energy chains are formed is a fundamental part of physics. In these activities we are building on pupils’ knowledge of energy in a fun and collaborative way.

Learning Outcomes: Pupils will be able to identify the different types of energy and demonstrate an understanding of how energy chains are formed.

Push, Pull or Push and Pull

Description: Identifying and classifying are important parts of all the sciences and here we have devised a fun way for younger children to start learning these processes. If you add different sets of cards please send them to the address below for expanding our library.

Learning Outcomes:  Pupils will be able to identify which kind of force is used for various activities.

What's That Sound?

Description: Differentiating between sounds to decide whether they are loud or quiet and high or low is a fun way of getting pupils to think and distinguish between sounds. 

Learning Outcomes: Pupils will have increased their knowledge about sound and will be able to give examples to demonstrate this.

Energy and Sound Dominoes

Description: This dominoes activity is designed to consolidate the spelling and meanings of scientific vocabulary.


Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to identify the different types of energy and sounds, and their meanings.


Description: This game has been devised to help pupils to be able to generalise about stability (or instability), explain why some objects are more/less stable and compare the stability of different objects.

Learning Outcomes: students will be aware of the stability and instability of certain objects and will be able to familiarise themselves with a language that involves comparison and qualifier.
