In centers, first graders experiment with push and pull.  

In one center students had to use their air to push the ping pong ball through the maze.

In another center the students make a button yoyo.  If you twirl the button around the string and then pull and push the string, the button will work like a yoyo.

In a different center they experimented with ramps to see how a high and low ramp would make the car move faster or slower.

In the last center they tried to make cars move on different surfaces to see which surface the cars could move faster or slower on.  They found out that the carpet was the hardest surface to move their cars on.  

They had a lot of fun experimenting with the fun forces of push and pull.
