Whipple Second Graders Set Marbles in Motion

IMG_1248Whipple second grade decided to take advantage of the freezing temperatures by creating colored ice marbles to teach their science unit on motion.  The students were asked to determine various ways to set the “marbles” in motion and record their hypotheses.  Each student was then asked to experiment and try out their recorded option of force.  Some of the hypotheses included rolling the ice marble, sliding it, and even throwing it (done underhand of course).  At the conclusion of the experiment the students continued to experiment with regular marbles in the classroom trying to create different paths of motion (straight, curved, and zig-zag), what would happen by introducing friction onto the surface, and finding ways to slow down or speed up the “marbles”.
