A Hands-On Exploration of the Physics of Motion

Students build and experiment with three-dimensional models of skate park equipment to explore the physics of skateboarding. Once constructed, they send glass marble "skaters" through their park, and explain how the skater and each piece of equipment demonstrate concepts of physics including potential and kinetic energy, friction, and momentum. The full unit can require 10 class periods. Grades 5–9. 8½" x 11". Interact. 125 pages.
