Object Falling Game
- Supplies Needed: Objects Of Differing Sizes
This is a game based on Galileo Galilei’s infamous Falling Bodies Experiment. Galileo, through dropping objects from the Tower of Pisa, proved that objects dropped at the same time would land at the same time. It did not matter their weight, however. A box of feathers would hit at the same time as a bowling ball.
As long as nothing gets in the way of the fall, such as wind, objects won’t fall at different speeds. In one of the coolest science games for kids, you’re going to be teaching them about this. Have a bunch of objects that you’re not attached to set up on a relatively high structure, then simply have kids drop the objects from here. Obviously, an adult should be present!
