Fun activity with EASY materials! Students play with common supplies to experience Newton's First Law of motion "first hand". (Pun intended!) The easy-to-follow activity paper (1 page front/back) leads middle school students independently through 5 small activities, and asks simple analysis questions for each. Easy and engaging!
Supply list: small box, marble, Lego person, small cart, toy car, pennies, beaker or cup, index card, glass flask or bottle, hoop, metal nuts
Many of these supplies can easily be substituted by something similar!
