Sir Isaac Newton was an amazing man who had many PYP qualities. We decided he was an inquirer, caring, knowledgeable, a thinker, a risk taker and very open minded. He has taught us that anyone can achieve great things if they keep trying and are interested.

            We have been having a great time learning about Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion.  Some of the experiments we have done to test his theories include; launching carts with marbles, dropping objects of different mass, comparing the distance carts of different masses travel and lots more (see photos.) After much discussion, hypothesizing and testing, we all agree that his laws are right and that we use them in our daily lives.

This is an example of how much more interesting science is when everyone gets to work on the experiments. Do you think Mr. Newton had a slip & slide in England in the 1700's?
