Inspire curiosity

The year is off to a great start. Kindergarteners recently played Air Soccer by using straws to blow a ping-pong ball around a table and try to score a goal. In the process they learned that force has size and a direction and that we don't need to touch an object to move it. The classroom was full of shouts of "Gooaaaal!". 

Fourth graders learned about kinetic and potential energy. Using rulers and rubber bands, they observed that rubber bands that are released after being more stretched, fly faster and make a louder noise when they hit a pan, showing that potential energy and kinetic energy are related.
