This is a clear and engaging way to help your students observe and understand forces and motion. By focusing on the various components of the Mousetrap game they observe different kinds of pushes and pulls and are able to see how these forces impact objects.
In this product you will receive:
- a list of materials
- step by step instructions for how to prepare and conduct the observations
- real photos accompanying the instructions to provide clarity
- a Mousetrap "story" that delineates the pushes and pulls in the game
- a Mousetrap "story" where students must identify the various pushes and pulls in the game and write them in to complete the story
