Cleveland Museum of Natural History visits FES students

Recently, second grade students had the opportunity to spend time with Danielle Sampliner, and Outreach Educator from the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, to take part in a  hands-on demonstration that re-enforced Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion.

Students talked about and participated in fun experiments that increased  their understanding of Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion. This workshop supports the  Common Core Science Standards of second grade, Physical Science – Changes in Motion.

Our second graders worked on the following:

Newton’s First Law of Motion: An object at rest tends to remain at rest. An object in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. (INERTIA)IMG_2958

Newton’s Second Law of Motion: Acceleration of an object is directly related to the force of an object and inversely related tot the mass of the object. (F=ma).

Newton’s Third Law of Motion: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

The funding for this program, “Forces and Motion: Accelerate Your Mass of Students!” as part of their”Science-to-Go!” program came from the Community Foundation of Lorain County.  Students are encouraged to visit the Cleveland Museum of Natural History at: http://cmnh.org/site/Index.aspx
