Mrs. Hofmann discussed Newton’s 3rd Law, working with a Newton scale (a/k/a force scale; a/k/a spring scale).

Here are the worksheets for the Middle and High School physics groups

     Thanks Mrs. Bestul for helping out with the young scientists!!!

They also worked with the Newton scales to measure the force needed to lift objects from the table.  They continued to explore with the Newton scales measuring force needed to drag items.  It takes more force to move an object when there is more friction!!
