Get Moving!

As we continue to explore Newton's Laws of Motion, my students got the treat of visiting five motion stations today. Station 1: flicking a quarter against another quarter and recording how far it moved; Station 2: using a hand towel and creating vibrations to get a ball to move on it without lifting the towel completing off the ground in addition to placing the ball on a yardstick and gently pushing the ball to see how far it travels on the yardstick; Station 3: comparing several objects when gravity is pushing on them (paper & pen dropping from same height, pencil & penny, etc...recording paper is shown below); Station 4: using marbles and plastic pieces with suction cups on white board to create a pathway for marble to drop (see picture); Station 5: exploring toy cars with strip that causes them to move.

Everyone had a great day!
