Who doesn't like to play with balloons??
Third graders had the opportunity to mess-around with balloon cars recently, observing motion as part of the third grade science curriculum.
Dr. Groh visited from the GRCC physical sciences department with a box of balloon car parts. Third graders assembled their own car, blew up the balloon, and observed the motion through several trials.
As part of the Forces and Interactions science unit, third graders investigate motion. Key vocabulary is push, pull, force, balanced and unbalanced, friction, gravity and gravitational force.
