Elementary grade II- A, B, C, D, E, F

Islamic Integration:

“(God is) the one Who created the night, the day, the sun and the moon. Each one is travelling in an orbit with its own motion” (Sura 21: 33).

What did Students Do?

Students had two eggs, one hard-boiled and one raw. They spun the eggs, one by one, on a smooth surface and touched them softly. They observed and felt the difference in their movements.

What did they learn?

They were explained the difference in their movements. The raw egg keep moving because of the contents of the raw egg are liquid instead of solid, when the egg was touched the inside contents continued to move as inside contents are still moving. Whereas, a hardboiled egg stopped moving when touched.

How did the activity go?

Students learnt and were able to explain simply Newton’s first law of motion which is an object will keep moving unless it is stopped by an external force be it finger or air.

Activity was simple and materials were easy to arrange so every student got chance to participate Alhamdulilah!
