Product Description
The purpose of this activity is to allow students to think critically to answer a seemingly simple question. In this case, does a larger object fall harder than a small object? The students will need to use the scientific method to determine a way to answer that question. They will also need to design a test to empirically show that a bigger object lands with more force than a smaller one.

This is a really unique experiment so that students can start thinking about the basics of physics. It delves into forces, mass, gravity, and impacts.
