Force and Motion Mini Investigation Centers

Students at Allapattah Flats K-8 did some miniĀ force and motionĀ investigations before their unit assessment. They were able to see the effect friction has on the distance of the toy school bus versus when they placed it on the tile. They were also able to see the more mass something has the more force it has such as trying to knock down water bottles with a golf ball and a volleyball. Students also explored magnets and the attraction and repulsion between the poles. The station that every student loved the most was using the spring scales to find the weight in grams and Newtons pulling on a regular toy school bus and one that had added mass. They then took these school buses and saw how mass can effect the distance an object in motion goes. Students loved this fun center rotation for force and motion.
