Students learn how to identify the forces around them as well as categorise them as either contact or non-contact forces. They will also learn how forces always come in pairs (action and reaction) and to label forces on free-body diagrams. There is a worksheet to practise labelling forces differentiated for low, middle and high ability.

Good resource, very well planned but reaction force is missing for this lesson - needed for new KS3 curriculum.
Thank you for your feedback on this resource. There were two slides on 'interaction force pairs' which covered the concept of action and reaction forces, however, I have edited these to make both the slides and notes section more explicit on this following your comments.<br /> Thanks again, feedback is always welcome :)
