Learning about Force in Science Class
Barnhart School’s 3rd grade class is learning about force in science class.
They have been learning about various types of bridges, and were tasked to create their own bridges with 2 sheets of paper and heavy books. The object of the lesson was to build the strongest bridge they could with the paper and books.
Students then tested the strength of their bridges with pennies. Some student’s bridges held nearly 300 pennies!
Force and movement experiments that use easy to get household materials are fun science activities for young students.
