  1. The students will be introduced to the concepts of force and direction of motion through directed experiments in science class and in discussions with the science teacher.

  3. We will pick two questions to explore as a class science project.
  4. We will make some hypotheses.
  5. We will spend our class time thinking of what we need to do to test out our experiment.
  6. We will plan to go to The Franklin Institute to test out some of our ideas.
  7. We will record in science journals what has happened and what we learned.
