Moving Toys: Cam Mechanisms

Year 5


SKU: D5IL80051

This Cam Mechanisms KS2 DT lesson gives your Year 5 children the chance to investigate different toys with cam mechanisms. They will learn that a cam mechanism is a linkage system which has a follower to convert rotary movement to linear movement, and explore different examples of these in moving toys.

During their independent learning activities, they will then have the chance to explore some toys with cam mechanisms for themselves.

This Cam Mechanisms KS2 lesson comes fully prepared and ready for you to deliver to your class. There's an easy-to-follow lesson plan, a slideshow for the teaching input, differentiated activity ideas, and a range of printable resources. There are also links to a number of website showing toys with cam mechanisms in case you can't source any for the children to look at first-hand.
