Water, Water Everywhere


Summary:

In this lesson, students begin our unit on “Forces & Motion” by taking part in a classic water-balloon-throwing competition. They throw the balloon back and forth with a partner, increasing the distance as they go. When the balloon breaks, their team is done. At the end of class we discuss three rules for water balloon throwing. Little do they know, these three rules are actually Newton’s Laws.
