Putting Things in Motion

I can't think of anything better to teach a group of busy learners than motion! We have been learning about all kinds of motion with some very interesting experiments.

Yesterday we built roller coaseters to look at push and pull. Students learned that the steeper the drop the faster the marble would move. One group even figured out how to make the marble stay on the twisting track (Just like the old GREASED LIGHTENING!).

Today we tested back and forth motion and found out that weight doesn't efect how many times something will swing back and forth. Ask your student's how they came to their conclusion about back and forth motion?
