Pushing shapes with a straw

As part of our work on pushing and pulling we tried to push a range of objects with a straw. We all made a prediction about which shape ( a ball of newspaper, golf ball, ping pong ball and a marble) we thought would roll the furtherest. We then tested our predictions.

We discovered that we had different techniques of blowing through a straw and that Terina was very skilled at making all of the shapes move. Well done Terina.


  1. Wow Terina you have so much breath in you! What a talent you have!!! Heaps of Aroha MUM.

  2. Wow i wouder why? the ball with wholes got far and the other two not so far.
