Exploring Force and Motion Through Bowling
The Fifth Grade went on a bowling field trip to Skyway Lanes in order to explore Force and Motion. The students learned about force, acceleration, momentum and friction.
While bowling, they explored what would happen if they changed the weights of the bowling ball and how it would affect any or all of the previous vocabulary. They also tried changing the force behind their rolls and had to keep track of how many pins they knocked down each time.
Many of our students are excellent bowlers! Please be sure to ask a 5th grader about this wonderful trip.
