1. Children enjoy a funny folktale about a rabbit with big feet and even bigger ears.
2. Children retell the story with Valerie using a piece of paper for their 'ears.'
3. Miss Liz Science Wiz presents the topics of gravity, force, push, pull and incline.
4. Students make predictions regarding what will happen to their paper ears as they apply force. drop them from different heights, and add paper clips to their ears.
5. Students will experiment with push and pull forces as they make their ears glide across
their desk. Students will vary the amount of force that they use.
6. Students put their string in the hole and do a 'zip line.' They increase the speed of their ears by increasing the weight using a paper clip!
7. We explore how these concepts apply to rabbits in real life.
8. We review all concepts, sign language, and the story!
