Pushes and Pulls

Grade K - Forces and Interactions: Pushes and Pulls

In this Storyline, students develop an understanding of the cause-and-effect relationship between the strength of a push or pull and how fast and far an object will move. Students also investigate how the direction of a push or pull affects the direction of an object's motion. Finally, they use this knowledge to plan and build a design to change the motion of an object by varying the strengths and directions of pushes and pulls on the object.
