Push, Pull & a Little Bernoulli
The Push, Pull & a Little Bernoulli Motivator Map for Educators celebrates some basic physics principles with a simple ping-pong task and then provides a fun-filled, truck experiment illustrating push and pull. A movie of “Truckin and Rollin” offers unlimited possibilities to meet the standards of designing and conducting investigations in the physical science of MOTION. For “Truckin” and the exploration of PULL, what different materials might students use? Another activity challenges students to say push and pull as they manipulate tennis balls in a group on the floor or a table. Altogether, the activities offer fun ways to bring physical science alive.
