Swinging: What Young Children Begin To Learn about Physics during Outdoor Play.
Fox, Jill Englebright
Journal of Elementary Science Education, v9 n1 p1-14 Spr 1997
Identifies behaviors of young children during play on swings that may be consistently observed as evidence of their construction of the physics principles related to pendulums. Findings indicate that children's activities on swings demonstrate their interest in experimenting with balance, force, gravity, resistance, and resonance. Discusses implications for early childhood and elementary classrooms. (JRH)
