Product Description
Students always enjoy testing inertia. This activity takes students through three activities that demonstrate Newton's First Law of Motion. Students should notice that an object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion, unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

Materials needed: coins or washers, beaker or cup, note card, toy car.

Main topics: inertia, Newton's First Law of Motion

Quick, easy, and effective in demonstrating inertia. Great for middle school or introductory high school courses.
