Investigation – how does the length of a bone affect its strength?

A practical investigation that simulates bones using paper tubes. Students investigate the strength of the 'bone' by adding weights to the suspended bones until they break. This builds on key practical skills such as identifying variables, making a table and drawing a graph.
