Fantastic Physics

Grade 1-2 have begun a number of experiments designed around learning principles of force and motion.
We began with introducing an activity to play with gravity and balls in motion by designing and building your own marble runs. Children have also since watched a couple of short videos on gravity and Newton's third law: "To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." We also did a follow up experiment by seeing how the height of a ramp affects how far the ball rolls. Children have also shared their explorations into observing what happens when two balls collide.
