This week 4th Classes learnt about gravity. The children completed an exciting investigation; by dropping two objects of a different mass and size from a high spot we watched to see which would hit the ground first. We discovered that as long as there is no air resistance stopping or slowing something down, everything falls at the same speed no matter what its mass. It takes more gravity to pull down a heavy object. It takes less gravity to pull a lighter object. The force of gravity and size of an object are balanced causing all things to fall at the same speed.
