Forces and Motion Dancing

Students learned a dance to help them demonstrate our science terms! After discussing that friction can help or hinder dancing, the students danced barefoot so they wouldn’t slide, but their pants could help them spin. The students showed momentum and inertia by running around their partner and having their partner stop them from moving. They have learned that velocity is the speed and a change in direction.  While dancing, the student ran towards the front of the room, and then split off to do a leap! There are a lot of examples of force, acceleration, momentum, inertia, friction, and velocity. Can you spot it in our video? These fourth graders can explain it!  CLICK on the link to watch!
