Hubbard Middle School students gain understanding of force and motion through hands-on learning

Students in Diane Glodek’s fifth and sixth grade science classes recently deepened their understanding of force and motion.


Students were tasked with designing and building marble runs from household items. Each track had to be made from at least 90% recycled materials. Once the tracks were built, each group of students applied sticky notes containing 60 vocabulary words and definitions to areas of the track where specific actions were taking place or demonstrated.

“We celebrated our science vocabulary knowledge by building these fun contraptions,” said teacher Diane Glodek.
