Roly Poly and Wheels
Produced by the Nuffield Foundation, these resources look at wheels and their uses.
In Roly poly, a story is told of two children who design and make their own wheel-based toys. It can be used to get children thinking about designing and making their own rolling toys. The resource is presented as a self-printed booklet. This requires pages folding into the correct sequence and this can also be used as an activity with the children.
Rolling is taken further in Wheels, a booklet which challenges children to identify different types of wheels used in everyday situations.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
