Product Description
Students are introduced to the concept of Newton's 1st Law of Motion and inertia by completing six (6) different challenges/games in this lab activity.

Example of one of the game challenges:
a. Get a plastic cup, index cards, and a quarter.
b. Place the index card on top of the cup so it is centered over the opening. Put the quarter on top of the index card.
c. Using your finger pull the index card out from under the quarter. You are trying to get the quarter to drop into the cup.
d. Complete 10 trials and record your results in the data table.

Students love to compete in the challenge games and it is a great way to lead into a discussion of the 1st Law and inertia with students and why some challenges are easier than others.
