Today the children were learning about the force of gravity. We began with a prediction chart and weighing objects. The children had to vote which object would fall to the floor first, last or at the same time when dropped at chest height. The most common predictions were that the heaviest objects would land on the floor first. Once the predictions were complete, the children stood up to observe the objects dropping and landing at the same time. They learned that no matter the weight of an object, it will land at the same time with another item. Key words used today: prediction, fair test, evaluation and force.
