Again, I decided to reinforce this science concept with art! We took a canvas outside with some paint and put it in a box. I squirted paint (using the PUSHing force) onto the canvas and threw in four marbles. The kids took turns using the canvas to create a ramp by pulling one side up higher than the other and let gravity pull the marbles down the ramp! In this way, we created a collaborative piece of art by using GRAVITY! It turned out so beautiful! The kids loved it and it reinforced that gravity pulled down!
