Robert and His Adventure Learning Newton's Laws by Gracie Blackwell


Once upon a time there was a cat named Robert and he and his family were driving to his aunt and uncles house. He was busy worrying about his upcoming science test to pay attention to his younger sister talking about barbies. Suddenly, his car came to a sudden stop with his body leaning forward quite far. If it weren't for his seatbelt, he would keep on moving and the end result wouldn't be pretty. "Whoa...you know what? What just happened was an example of Newton's first law of motion and it's how objects in motion tend to stay in motion unless acted on by some external force which is also known as inertia." He said. "What's inertia again?" his mom asked. "Something or someone staying in its spot, unless it is moved by another force." he answered back.


I actually think I might do well on the test after all he thought.

After Robert and his family arrived at their Aunt and Uncle's house he just wanted to watch TV and relax with his family after spending what felt like


forever in the car.


His dad wanted some uncle-nephew bonding time, so his dad told him to play football with this uncle.


"You have a science test coming up...so we're going to have some fun studying and playing football at the same time." "Since Newton's second law of motion states that the acceleration of an objects depends on two variables: the mass of an object and the net force. If we were tackling each other it would be easy for me to tackle you since your smaller my acceleration would be increased." his uncle said.

They tried out Newton's Second Law and it definitely worked.


After Robert and his uncle finished playing football they sat down and relaxed a little bit on the couch.


The TV was on when they walked back into his uncles house. It showed a rocket launching on the TV.


"You know what law I see right now?" "No... what?" "On the TV, it's showing Newton's third law." "How?" "Well...Newton's third law of motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite re-action. The rocket launching is going up which is the action and the equal and opposite reaction would be the gas coming out from the bottom." "Ohhh I'll definitely remember that."


"Robert I have another example of Newton's third law of motion!" Robert's mother said. "Sure..what is it?" "It's what you're doing right now." "I'm sitting on the couch right now..." "Yeah. You're body exerts a force on the chair and the chair exerts an equal force back on you." "That's clever and easy to remember."


Robert went to bed that night knowing that he would ace his test thanks to his family.


Robert and his family had to go back home later that week and said goodbye to his aunt, uncle, and cousins.


After his hard studying and work, he got 100 on the test. He and his dad celebrated by going out for ice cream after school. THE END
