Mrs. Aguero's ClassPublished by linda.beck on Mon, 12/12/2016 - 13:05
Mrs. Aguero's class has been learning about gravity. We made parachute men to see what effects gravity would have on the motion of an object. After doing the experiment of dropping the parachute men, we had a class discussion. We discovered that some parachute men dropped slowly and some dropped fast. We determined that if there was more weight on the parachute, more force when throwing, or the parachute was not opening up or the strings tangled, the man dropped quickly. We also determined that if the wind was blowing, it changed the course of the man.Students had so much fun learning about gravity and what effects gravity would have on the motion of an object.
