Inertia Man! I got about equal parts chuckles and eye rolls when I showed my students this. Which of course just made it more hilarious :)

Mass Definition: is a measure of an object’s inertia; also a measure of the amount of matter in an object. Depends only on the amount of and kind of particles that compose an object – not on its location (as weight does)   Example: the boxes have the same amount of matter in them, thus they have the same mass. Unlike weight, the mass of the boxes won't change on its own, no matter where the boxes are located.

Inertia Definition:the property of any body to resist changes in its state of motion.  Example: When the person gently pulls the tablecloth, the plate and cup will stay in place due to inertia. The plate and cup will resist a change in motion.

Inertia - The resistance an object has to a change in its state of motion. The car has the momentum to keep moving in a straight line even after it hits the wall.

Q: What can you do with large marshmallows, paper towel cardboard, flour and a deep breath?  A: Make a marshmallow shooter!  STEM Mom provides two ways to teach this lab. One introduces the scientific method to students and the second is a higher-level inquiry method where students make more decisions about how they design their experiment.

Newtons 1st Law (object at rest) : An object at rest stays at rest with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. The picture shows an image of an object at rest.
