Gotta Love a Classic

I love a good Newton's cradle. I find them so relaxing. I gave this one a rating of 4 instead of 5 because I have noticed some annoying elasticity in the transfer of energy between balls so after a while there are sometimes gaps interfering with the rhythm of the cradle.

Students love to watch this demo. I ask them to design different combinations to try. All eyes are always on the spheres!

Every student wants to see this at work. And they see Newton's Laws as they enjoy the show. Great action device to help the students understand.

Great product, but the thin fishing wire strings get tangled if not handled with care.

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

K-PS2-1

Students can use the Newton's Cradle to plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.

K-PS2-2

Students can use the Newton's Cradle in an investigation to analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.

3-PS2-2

Students can use the Newton's Cradle in an investigation to understand motion. Students can make observation and/or measurements of an object's motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

4-PS3-4

Students can use the Newton's Cradle to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.

MS-PS3-5

Students can use the Newton's Cradle to construct, use and present arguments or experiments to support the claim that when the motion energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.

HS-PS2-1

Students can use the Newton's Cradle in an investigation to analyze data to support the claim that Newton's Second Law of Motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.

HS-PS2-2

Students can use the Newton's Cradle in an investigation and use mathematical representations to support the claim that the total momentum of a system of objects is conserved when there is no net force on the system.

HS-PS3-4

Students can use the Newton's Cradle design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.
