Construct explanations of the relationship between the motion of an object and the pull of gravity using observations and data collected.
- Physical Science: Exploring Pushes and Pulls
The student will demonstrate an understanding of the effects of pushes, pulls, and friction on the motion of objects.
An object that is not moving will only move if it is pushed or pulled. Pushes and pulls can vary in strength and direction and can affect the motion of an object. Gravity is a pull that makes objects fall to the ground. Friction is produced when two objects come in contact with each other and can be reduced if needed.
