Push and Pull

We did two experiments this week to explore force and motion with pushes and pulls.

 

First, we built ramps to try to get a car to travel as far as possible. We had to make a plan, work together, and try to improve our design to make the car travel a longer distance.

 

Then we worked with some of our fifth grade buddies to build catapults with spoons, rubber bands, and craft sticks. We wanted to get a pom pom to travel as far as possible. Again, we needed teamwork and perseverance to be successful!
