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 am in my last year of graduate school, and having to do observation, and student teaching has been great. Lesson Planet was one of the sites mentioned one day, since then I've gain so many new creative ideas through the lessons. Thank you Lesson Planet
