Exploring Physics with Toys -- ages 6-8

Physics: Science in Your Toy Box (Grades 1-2)
We all play with toys, but did you know that these toys are teaching us some
important scientific principles? Let’s learn about energy, momentum, and motion as we “play” with a variety of toys, such as tops, yoyos, poppers, Slinkys and wind-ups. We will try to explain scientifically how each one works and conduct experiments to test our hypothesis. Remember, Wilbur and Orville Wright got their start playing with their kites!
