Product Description
Dear Teacher,

How high will the ball bounce? is one of several experiments that my students plan and perform to learn the basics of experimental design, collecting data and summarizing results.

I really like this lab for allowing my students to discover the challenges of conducting a controlled experiment through trial and error.

It’s perfect for pairing with a lesson on kinetic and potential energy and can be completed in one class period.

Through this activity students are challenged to do the following:

• Identify variables and constants

• Examine experimental design

• Graph data

• Summarize results

Supplies are minimal and cheap:

• Balls – small bounce balls work well ( and are very cheap)

• Meter sticks, yard sticks or measuring tape (1 or 2 per group)

• Masking tape to secure meter sticks/measuring tape to wall
