Teachers TV: Lesson Starters: Pushing and Pulling
A canoeing expedition provides a helpful way to demonstrate pulling and pushing actions; pulling on wetsuits, pushing on helmets, pulling the canoe out of a rack and pushing it into the water; real life applications of pulling and pushing actions. We see in close-up as the paddles pull and push the water past the canoe, propelling it through the water, and finish the sequence by pulling the canoe out of the water and with someone being pushed into the water. This Lesson Starter is to help children identify objects which may be moved by pushing and pulling. PROMPT QUESTION: What have you pulled and pushed today?
