Product Description
This is an exciting activity from a student’s point-of-view! The small explosion of flour generated by the impact of objects dropped onto a surface of flour is a visual hook. The hands-on activity integrates math, as students can measure drop heights and the dimensions of the resulting craters. This resource provides graphic notes and images on craters that can be projected for those that have document cameras. A formula for energy is given. Complete directions to run the activity are described and two versions of result tables are included: either can be a stand-alone assignment or incorporated into a laboratory notebook. Students who finish early can work on the provided activity question sheet.
