Forces of Motion

Push or Pull?! How can we get things to move?

Today, we investigated Newton's Third Law of Motion: Every action has an EQUAL and OPPOSITE reaction. We had six objects: spool, paper clip, link, marble, cube, & a stick. Then we brainstormed ways to may those objects move: flick, hit, roll, drop, push, blow, or hit. As we got our objects moving, we recorded both how far the object moved and what stopped the object from moving (friction, running into something, etc.)
