Explore Science Inquiry, Primary Science, and more!

Investigate inertia and gravity in this hands on investigation for 3rd, 4th, 5th graders.  Correlates to the *Next Generation Science Standards 3rd grade benchmark for Forces and Interactions.  Students will follow the scientific method to answer the question:Does the size of the can opening affect the number of pennies that fall into the can?Teachers will love its' ease of use, simple materials, and watching students get excited about science.
