In this activity, learners investigate the properties of different types of balls. Learners conduct experiments on four different balls to see which can bounce the highest and which continues bouncing for the longest period of time. Use this activity to talk about how each ball's properties are appropriate for their respective sport. This activity also coincides well with math graphing practice.
