Ball Bounce Experiment. Grades 3-5.
Rushton, Erik; Ryan, Emily; Swift, Charles
Many of today's popular sports are based around the use of a ball yet none are alike. In fact, they are all designed with specific characteristics in mind. In this activity, students investigate different balls' ability to bounce and represent the data they collect graphically. This activity uses a time frame of 100 minutes. (Author/SOE)
