Design & Technologies - Use The Force!

Grades: 2nd Grade, 1st Grade
Subjects: STEAM, Science

Student Instructions

Force is a push or a pull of an object that causes the object to speed up, slow down, or stay in one place. In other words, a force is what causes an object to move. Friction and gravity are two types of forces that influence how an object moves. Using your fingers, push and pull your playdough to make it change shape. What funny shapes can you create? Take a photo of some of these shapes. Roll your playdough into a ball and drop it from chest height, take a photo of the result. Choose some materials from the junk pile and roll your playdough across it. Take a photo of the patterns that appear on your play dough. Create a PicCollage of your pictures. Use the add button to attach your PicCollage from the camera roll to this activity, with the caption “Use The Force”
