Students had fun playing with the classic Newton’s Cradle, making paper spinners (cardboard paper circle + toothpick), creating paper rollercoasters (paper + tape), hula hooping, and reading science books. Many shared their knowledge of forces of acceleration and gravity. It was fun giving physics names to the everyday phenomena.
In addition, students build a very tall defying-gravity tower by working together. They had a great time crashing it to the grown before going back to class.
Watch: For those with abundant time, a paper rollercoaster project.
Watch: Marble Run challenge.
Try: Marble in a glass challenge.
Try: Coin drop challenge.
