TASK

First, you will need a piece of fruit or a ball and a scrunched up piece of paper.

 

Next, hold each object in your hand and decide which one is heavier. When you have done this, tick the box on the table that will be sent to you on SEESAW.

 

Then, make your predictions on the table.

 

Finally, complete the experiment by dropping both objects at the same time from the same height and record your findings.
