Kindergarten students will explore different ways that objects can move. They can move quickly or slowly, in a straight or jagged line, backward or forward, downward or upward, or in circles. Students will also understand by using a force, push or pull, that they can make an object move. Students will explore magnetic forces by using magnets.
