We are learning about forces ( magnetism, buoyancy, wind, water, muscular, friction,static electricity, gravity) and their effects on our daily lives. think about something you do everyday and how different it would be if we didn’t have these forces. For example brushing your teeth!!
After you watch the video on Chris Hadfield performing an everyday activity in space chose an activity and comment on how it would be different without forces in the bubble beside this post! I am excited to read them!
