Our little scientists continued to get familiar with a superhero of science, Sir Isaac Newton. We learned about Newton’s apple and were marveled by the concept that the Moon is constantly falling as it goes around Earth. We enjoyed pulling on Newton’s beads. We played a game with a several levels of difficulty to see gravity and inertia in play. We observed how a quarter is climbs up when we tapped down on a box, proving the third of Newton’s laws.
With the new understanding of these laws we even know how the famous Tablecloth Trick works. It’s all about the first of Newton’s laws and friction. Who needs magic when the science makes it amazing?!
