Flicking With Force

Third graders are introduced to the concept of force and how it acts upon objects. In groups, they are given a ruler, ping-pong ball and golf ball and compare and contrast the force put on the balls when flicked by the ruler. To end the lesson, they share their results of their experiment and identify what they know about force.

I teach Science to students with special needs - so I always value many sources when I put together my lessons. I often get inspired and get new creative ideas - when I do my research on Lesson Planet.
