Physics Of Sports

The topic that is going to be explored is physics of sports. We chose this topic for several reasons. First of all, it deals with sports which is something that most children enjoy. We also were drawn to this topic because we thought it could be incorporated into many different aspects of science as well as other subject areas. Our overall goal for the children is to understand the mechanics behind the different sports that they play. Sometimes when we watch a sport being played, we do not take the time to think about every aspect that is involved in the game. Throughout this unit we will take a look at how forces affect motion by explaining how they work in different sports and activities.
