Bouncing High - Printable Scientific Method Activity

Bouncing High

When introducing the scientific method to young kids, it is always good to start with topics that they can easily relate to, and that are of immediate interest to them. 'Bouncing High' is a simple such science experiment. Kids carefully measure the height from which a rubber ball is dropped, and the height to which the ball bounces. Based on the results, kids conclude whether the height from which the ball is dropped affects the height to which the ball bounces.
