This week your child has been studying about Gravity. They have been researching experiments that they can use to explain what is gravity? Although this sounds like a very simple topic, your child is going on a journey of how to research information through different website.

Gravity keeps the moon where it's supposed to be -- in orbit. See more moon pictures.

Every time you jump, you experience gravity. It pulls you back down to the ground. Without gravity, you’d float off into the atmosphere — along with all of the other matter on Earth.

You see gravity at work any time you drop a book, step on a scale or toss a ball up into the air. It’s such a constant presence in our lives, we seldom marvel at the mystery of it — but even with several well-received theories out there attempting to explain why a book falls to the ground (and at the same rate as a pebble or a couch, at that), they’re still just theories. The mystery of gravity’s pull is pretty much intact.

Try this experiments guys

watch this too there’s lots of information to help you understand gravity

Have fun
