Let's Get Dizzy
The physics of movement.
Students will learn the physics of spinning through observation of nature and applications to varied materials – along with a little bit of math.
They will observe the spinning of the "helicopter seed pods" from the maple tree.
Make a folded paper spinner.
Make a spinning top that will mix colors using fractions and recycled materials.
So, let's get dizzy and spin.
