In this activity, students drop rubber balls in order to observe and measure the effects of elasticity. They use
graphs to make predictions for further trials.
Real World Science Topics:
- An exploration of how the height of a rebound is related to the height a ball is dropped from
- An exploration of the elasticity of rubber balls
Students will gain an understanding of how the height from which a ball is dropped affects how
high it bounces. Students will also learn about graphing.
