Mrs. Fuentes’ class has been learning about the Earth, sun, and stars. As part of their learning, they had a discussion about how Earth’s gravity pulls objects towards the ground. They discovered that gravity is what allows us to be able to stay on the ground and why objects fall. Students were able to use the scientific method when applying what they have learned about gravity to create their own parachutes for their bat or ghost. Students learned that the parachute will only slow down the object’s descent towards the ground and gravity will still pull the object down to the ground.
