Wheels and axles
We looked at a variety of moving objects such as cars, skateboards and a lifting trolley to see how they worked. A spinning axle with wheels attached was noticed by the children. We tried a variety of ways to make spinning axles using pegs, cotton reels, arches made out of pieces of card, straws and paper clips.
