The object of this lesson was to teach the kids about position and motion of objects ~ how they can be changed by pushing or pulling.
After the kids understood the difference in pushing and pulling we listed things that go by using these motions.
- Closing the door
- Push mower
- Van when it won’t start (sad, but true!)
- Opening door
- Opening drawers
- Nozzle on water sprayer
To demonstrate how we could “push” marshmallows I told the kids we where going to make a catapult.
I gave them the following materials:
- rubber bands
- plastic spoon
- wooden block
Emily was the winner ~ she had the marshmallows bouncing off the ceiling!
I think he ate at least 10 marshmallows before I noticed what he was doing.
