HOW IT WORKS?
Carefully move one ball, so that it will touch the remaining balls. Next, increase the amount of moved balls. The same amount of balls will always jump on the other side. Mind your fingers! You have just observed the conservation of energy rule and conservation of momentum rule.
HOW IT INFLUENCES CHILD’S DEVELOPMENT?
The Newton’s Pendulum, also known as Newton’s Cradle, is a device that in an effective way shows the rule of conserving energy and momentum during hits. The interesting representation of knowledge about occurring physical phenomena causes children to learn them more quickly and with more willingly. Newton’s Cradle is also a device that supports attention and focus.
