The Science behind our toys

As we finish up our unit on Force and Motion we spent an afternoon exploring how many familiar toys move with push and pulls. Students took turns playing with each toy and deciding how they moved. We had fun exploring yo-yo's, trucks, paddle balls, and mini-skateboards pushed and pulled. Take a look around your house and see all the things you can find that push and pull.
