4th graders at Meadow Brook Elementary are building scientific reasoning skills and strategies through this year's SEED Standards. Right now are learning all about energy - how it transfers and what happens when objects collide. 4th Graders in Mrs. Anderson's class designed an experiment to test what happened when balls of different sizes and weights were rolled and hit a water bottle. They chose to use a beach ball, kickball, a little whiffle ball, golf ball, and a bouncy ball. Through their test, they were able to determine the effect of energy on objects when they collide.
