Included in this set are four labs designed to meet the NGSS kindergarten standards for force and motion:
-Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
-Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.
The labs included are as follows:
-Parachute Builder (STEM)
-Heavy and Light Bowling
-Marble Roller (Art Connection)
All of the labs are hands-on and kindergarten friendly. The labs require some materials, but most of them are common classroom objects such as arts and craft supplies, marbles, and recyclables. The labs can be completed in groups, individually, in pairs, or as a whole group depending on your specific classroom needs. Each lab includes the materials needed, directions, and reflection questions. In addition, reproducables are included where necessary.
