Draw your own physics scenarios (in crayon, no less) online in this demo of the full-version game. Use the demo to draw boxes, lines, and items that can roll, bounce, and change structures to identify forces and movement. Demo is available for download on Mac operating systems only. Note that the purchase of the full-version features 6 new islands for play as well as rockets, ropes, and hinges. Read the "About" page to view the requirements on a windows machine.

In the Classroom

Use the demo version to allow students to play with elements that they can draw and move. Provide an opportunity for play, and then be sure to "pair and share" with each other and the class about the movements of the items in order to identify basic laws of motion and forces. Apply these understandings with further canned labs that can reinforce concepts. Discuss relevant material for better understanding. Be sure to end the unit with more open inquiry play either with this demo or materials used in the labs in order for students to ask questions and seek answers to share. Provide this option for students to develop scientific habits of mind and identify additional concepts that can be uncovered.
