Explore the wonders of inertia. The 7 tasks will help teach your students that an object at rest stays at rest unless a force acts upon it. They will also observe the transfer of energy to other objects. Students will feel like magicians as they try each task. Students are sure to have a fun, memorable science experience and teachers will enjoy watching the students master the tasks. Teachers will love the use of simple supplies and the collection of demonstrations. Teachers will also enjoy trying the tricks themselves. Penny balance is my favorite.
Included in the 18 page download:
*Background information and tips for each challenge
*7 task cards exploring inertia
*Task card answer sheet
Fabric or Newspaper, blocks or books, cardstock paper, washer, hex nuts, glue sticks, marbles, coins, heavy cups, different size containers, notecards, ruler, tables, and you.
This makes a great center activity or as stations. It also works well for a fun celebration activity or party.
