Marbles in Motion.
Brown, Helen; Meyers, Bernice; Schmidt, William
Hoosier Science Teacher, v24 n3 p94-96 Feb 1999
Marbles were successfully used to help primary students develop concepts of motion. Marble-unit activities began with shaking and rattling inference bags and predicting by listening just how many marbles were in each bag. Students made qualitative and quantitative observations of the marbles, manipulated marbles with a partner, and observed movement of marbles and the transfer of energy between them. (CCM)
