Product Description
This lesson plan is a FULLY scripted lesson on an introduction to balance and motion. It includes the learning targets and 2-day step-by-step instructions.

Paper cups have two different sized circles, or wheels, so the cup rolls in a rotational motion. When two cups are taped together, the wheels on the cups become equal and the taped cups roll straight. The movement of the rolling cups can change with the addition or shifting of a little weight. As students are investigating with the rolling cups, they will be manipulating the variables involved in motion –the size of the wheels, the amount of weight, and the position of the weight.

This lesson plan works directly with the Pebbles, Sand, and Silt FOSS kit.
