Let you students uncover the magic of inertia, pushes, and pulls with a hands on investigation. Correlates to the *Next Generation Science Standards for kindergarten: Forces and Interactions: Pushes and Pulls. Students will follow the scientific method to answer the question: Does a push or a pull affect the number of pennies that will fall into a jar?
Teachers will love it for its' ease of use, simple materials, and the enthusiasm of students.
By the end of the investigation students will have
*written a hypothesis and tell if they supported it.
*created a bar graph of their results.
*summarized their data by answering the question.
*be able to explain and demonstrate that objects do not move unless a force is applied.
