Science in the community-(Unit #2 Isaac Newton)

Newton BONUS: Visit the Aquatic Center and find somewhere that uses Newton’s laws of motion.

The students are learning all about Newton’s laws of motion and gravity, and also about mass and weight. Mass is how much matter is in an object. Weight is how much gravity is pulling on an object. Gravity pulls harder on the thing that has the greatest mass (or is the heaviest). They will be using all of this information when building their angry birds marshmallow catapults and roller coasters. Have fun making a splash and diving into physics!!
