Explore and measure the momentum of differently sized balls and see how force is transferred between objects as they bounce off the ground or each other! Students collaborate in small groups of 4, including a ball holder, ball stacker, and 2 observers who watch each ball’s height and collect runaways, demonstrating the value of fulfilling specific roles on a team. First, teams drop balls individually and measure the maximum bounce height of each. Then they stack all 3 balls and drop them from the same height, watching to see how the speed and height of each ball is affected. In the process, students will learn how to calculate momentum, discuss Newton’s First and Third Laws of Motion, and define the Law of Conservation of Motion. They’ll see how the ground acts as an outside force to disrupt a ball’s motion but also pushes back against the ball, conserving momentum as the ball launches into the sky! Included lesson direction is adaptable to grade ranges K-5 and 6-12. A durable mesh storage bag makes transportation a breeze for easy setup against the perfect wall—indoors or out. 40"L x 30"W.
