*Cooperative Learning is used when students think about the new information and work together to come up with a general answer
*Inquiry because the children are curious and want to find the answers to their questions
*Supply washers and fishing line
*Let them experiment using their new knowledge
*Students make their own TQPDAC
*Provide students with basic tools such as washers of difference sizes and fishing line.
*Explain next activity- Use those tools to answer some of the questions they may have.
*Let them do their own experiments using the knowledge they acquired from the swing activity.
*Have the groups come up with their own TQPDAC about what they tested and what their conclusions were.
*Be sure to tell students that they should have a procedure, data, analysis, and conclusion in their TQPDAC. They can use the TQPDAC from before to help them.
*Walk around, observe, and help out when needed.
*Students should find that weight or length of string does not make a difference in how fast a swing moves. Everything moves at the same speed.
*Constructivism because they are using previous knowledge to help them answer their questions
*Inquiry because the students want to learn more about their questions
*Higher Order Thinking- Application because they are applying the knowledge they learned
*Choice Theory-Freedom because they are free to try their own experiments and make their own TQPDAC
*Problem Based learning because they are given a
