I am in my last year at McKendree studying to get my elementary education degree. I am apart of the McKendree Women's Soccer team. I hope to teach older elementary and be a high school coach one day. Some of my hobbies include spending time with family and friends, doing anything outdoors, listening to music, and playing sports.

This article talked about how young children can start playing with the idea of motion and force without really knowing it. One of the examples was about children spinning a top and them wondering why some tops are similar and why some spin longer than other tops. The second example was about marbles in a cup that related to passengers in a car. I think this is a great example for children because it makes a realistic connection. The students can see themselves in the car and they can feel what the marble feels in the cup. I really liked this article and that the experiment present in this article is something that could be used with young students. I like the way this article takes such a complex topic like motion and simplifies it for young students to be able to relate and understand.
