In Science this week our class learnt how unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object. We also found out some key facts about Sir Isaac Newton and how he formulated the Law of Gravitational Force. We thoroughly enjoyed participating in an experiment to observe and record findings of different sized marbles being dropped into flour and cocoa powder to highlight how gravity and the weight of an object can affect the size of a crater made in the flour and cocoa powder.
