Mrs. Roper’s second graders have fun with force

Mrs. Roper’s second graders enjoyed learning about force and motion by using toy trucks and stuffed animals to simulate various scenarios and determine how different levels of force affected motion and how barriers affect the motion of a traveling object. They loved pushing around Mrs. Roper’s two-year-old son’s trucks and especially enjoyed watching the stuffed baboon catapulting from the truck when it hit a barrier. Science is so much fun!
