Science Activity: Wrecking Ball
We set up a wrecking ball in the block area, and let the children experiment with it. The wrecking ball was basically a ball and rope suspended from a dow rod. First, the children built structures from blocks and containers. Next, they used the wrecking ball to knock down their container. The children had to figure out where to hit the structures in order to know how to best knock them down.
