This lab is designed to meet Kindergarten Motion and Stability standards.
K-PS2-1: 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.
K-PS2-2: Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or directions of an object with a push or a pull.
In this lab, students explore what pushes and pulls are through discussion and activity. Students then design (with guidance) and complete the lab and graph. A data sheet and graph are included.
