Cartoon Physics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Looking for more engaging science examples for your elementary classroom? In this session, we will break down scenes from classic cartoons like Coyote and Roadrunner, Bugs Bunny, and other cartoon movie scenes using physics concepts taught in the elementary grade levels. Teachers will go through a few hands on experiments that their students can do to test whether or not the cartoon scenes showed good or bad physics. Teachers will also use the CER (Claim, Evidence, and Reasoning) method of developing good scientific explanations that are grade level appropriate. Participants will receive information on where to find each clip and hands on materials for easy use in the classroom.
