This week we have started learning about Newton’s Laws of Motion. We learned about how a body at rest stays at rest and a body at motion stays in motion unless acted on by another force. We explored and tested this by completing a lab where we pulled out a sheet of paper from under an object. We also did a test where we ran with a ball and figured out the best place to release the ball so we could hit a target on the floor. The picture shows Jeanette testing out the “body at rest” part of the law.
