Today, the students experimented with the energy that is transferred when marbles roll down a hill and collide with each other. The students were given foam tracks and some marbles, and were challenged to ask questions about the energy as the marbles roll down the track or crash into each other. Students then used the tracks to discover the answers to their questions. The students learned that a rolling marble with kinetic energy can transfer its energy to a stationary marble when it collides. Ask your students what happens when a marble crashes into a row of stationary marbles. Continue this exploration by playing a game of Ring TAW: Use shooter marbles to knock marbles out of a ring.

Colisiones – Energía (4-5)

Hoy, los estudiantes experimentaron con la energía que se transfiere cuando las canicas ruedan cuesta abajo y chocan entre sí. A los estudiantes se les dieron pistas de espuma y algunas canicas, y se les desafió a hacer preguntas sobre la energía cuando las canicas ruedan por la pista o chocan entre sí. Luego, los estudiantes usaron las pistas para descubrir las respuestas a sus preguntas. Los estudiantes aprendieron que una canica rodante con energía cinética puede transferir su energía a una canica estacionaria cuando choca. Pregunte a sus alumnos qué sucede cuando una canica se estrella contra una fila de canicas estacionarias. Continúa esta exploración jugando un juego de Ring TAW: Usa canicas de tirador para eliminar las canicas de un ring. Translated with Google Translate
