My 7th graders love when science can be hands on. Once they learn about a topic they like to try it out and practice applying what they've learned. These tools and kits will help them apply physical science properties relating to Newton's Laws, force, and motion. Having the opportunity to first build, and then see what you've learned, while applied in real time helps concepts stick. These items will help build our lab room and create an amazing physical science experience for 7th grade! My students love roller coasters, so having the opportunity to create their own while learning will get them excited about science! The gliders and forces lab will enhance their classroom practice of new skills, while the apples, loop the loop, and the inclined plane will provide a great larger scale example of what we're learning.
