First Graders - Forces in Motion
First graders enjoyed a presentation on Forces and Motion by Discovery Place employee and ITES parent, Mr. Samson. Did you know you could lift a student’s body weight with just one pinky? It’s possible! The students’ eyes were stuck to Mr. Samson as he demonstrated how an electromagnet works! These engaging experiments were a perfect companion to the lessons and projects already presented by the classroom teachers. The students expressed their continued interest as they asked many questions and posed a few “what if’s” at the end of the presentation. A special thanks to Mr. Samson for donating his time and expertise and for making this such a memorable event for our first graders! His presentation definitely heightened our students’ excitement for our upcoming field trip to the Charlotte Motor Speedway to further explore forces and motion!
