So, is the force still with you? Thinking back to Forces and Motion, how would you define a force? What happened to the force when we pulled on our elastic bands? How do we measure force? Use these questions to stimulate your thinking as you write your response. Also, respond to at least one classmate to keep the discussion going.

    1. Force is a push or pull of an object. When we pulled on our elastic bands, the bands got more tensed the farther they stretched then when we let go it went back to it's original shape. We measure force in newtons. JR,P.1

    3. CS, P1 What I remembered about Force was that you can use it to move objects by pushing them or pulling them. Also when my group was using the elastic bands ours created energy that was stored up and when it was released it was going very fast because of the force of the elastic band

    4. AD, P1 Force is a push or pull on an object measured in Newtons. When my group did the lesson with the elastic bands, I remember that the amount of force in Newtons increased more based on how far we pulled the bands back.

  10. JJ: P3 Force is the push or pull on an object based on physical action or movement in any way. The elastic band that was pulled had an increase in force and when released would be sent flying far because of the force involved.

If you stretch a rubber band, the harder it is to pull. If you stretch the rubber band too far than it might break. One way to measure force is through Newtons.
