STEM Concept: Forces and Interactions

Push and Pull 

This Storytime STEM-Pack includes all the materials you need to engage kids in a science activity that addresses the concept of force and motion through exploring the phenomenon of pushing and pulling a soccer ball. The activity is launched by reading the popular children's book Maisy Plays Soccer with them, and then exploring how mini squeeze soccer balls behave when they are pushed and pulled. It concludes with children sorting provided photo cards of real life situations into “push”, “pull”, or “both push and pull”. Included in this set, you'll find:

  • Detailed instructions (i.e., lesson plan) for the learning activities
  • twelve mini squeeze soccer balls 
  • masking tape
  • 24 photo cards for the sorting activity
  • Word wall cards to use in context
  • A copy of Maisy Plays Soccer  by Lucy Cousins

The entire activity takes approximately 45 minutes to complete.  This STEM-Pack is suitable for grades PreK-2.
