When Vikings travelled across the sea in their longships the wind filled the sails and pushed the boat along. If there was no wind the Vikings pulled the oars to move the ship. What other things can we move using pushes and pulls? Pushes and pulls can make things move. What other things can pushes and pulls do?

Vikings travelled long distances by sea but were not scared of falling off the edge of the Earth, even though they did not know the Earth was spherical. They also thought the sun and moon were horse-drawn chariots that followed each other through the sky around the Earth. The Vikings thought that the lands of the Earth were surrounded by a huge sea. How much of the Earth is land and sea? Were the Vikings correct? We now know that the Earth, sun and moon are different sizes. Can we make scale models of the Earth, sun and moon?
