Velocity, Acceleration, and Gravity

Middle schoolers perform an experiment where a string is tied across the room. A straw is threaded onto the string, and a balloon attached to the straw. Students determine the speed of the balloon as it moves across the string. They repeat the experiment, collecting data. Middle schoolers define acceleration and ways to calculate it.
