Newton’s First Law of Motion

newton title

Who would have thought Newton’s Three Laws of Motion could be so fun. I was probably just imagining it but when I informed the kids we were studying Newton’s Law’s of Motion I could have sworn I heard sighs and groaning. There are some really fun and easy experiments that illustrate the laws really well.

Newton’s First Law: An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

The kids loved performing this experiment. They were absolutely thinking there was going to be some serious egg clean up in the kitchen. All you need is a raw egg, glass of water (we dyed ours for fun), a toilet paper roll, and a pie plate. I bought my pie plate from the dollar store.

We also shot the video in slow motion.
