Moving Toys: Cam Shapes

Year 5


SKU: D5IL80052

Your Year 5 class will explore how cam shapes affect the linear movement of the follower in this hands-on KS2 DT lesson. The included slideshow presentation for the whole-class input challenges your class to think about how the shape and size of different cams might affect the movement of the follower, before showing your class how they can use a simple framework to test out their predictions.

They will then have the chance to try out different cam shapes for themselves by constructing the framework from the template given.

This ready-to-teach Cam Shapes lesson has a lesson plan with differentiated activity ideas, a slideshow for the teaching input, and a range of printable resources to support your Year 5 class as they explore cam shapes.
