This week we kicked off our "Force and Motion" unit in science! We are talking about the two forces of push and pull. To really understand these ideas, we've been getting to do some really cool activities in class. One of them included a ping pong ball race! Watch below as KM and IS push air through straws to make the balls move down the tube.
We talked about how if you want the ball to go father or move faster, you need to use more force. More force in this case would be a bigger blow of air. The kids loved this activity so much that they chose to do it during our indoor recess time.
