Come join us in the "matter kitchen" as we learn that our entire world is made of matter, including things we don't see, such as the air we breathe. We learn to use our five senses to identify the properties of an object - size, weight, shape, color, and temperature. Students identify some of the tools used to measure the properties of matter.

Isaac Newton himself shows students how gravity, friction, and inertia are related to mass, force, and momentum. Exciting graphics and re-creations allow students to see how Newton's laws of motion relate to real life. Experiments with roller blades, baseballs, and other common objects encourage students to make science exploration recreational.
