Mrs. Konop's 4th and 5th Grade Class Studies the Energy of Collisions

Recently, students in Mrs.Konop's homeroom have been studying the energy of collisions.   They took their knowledge of speed and energy to begin investigating what happens to kinetic energy when two objects collide.  Some is lost in sound and heat.  Where does the rest go?  How do the cars behave when they collide at varying heights on the ramp?  What happens when one car is heavier than the other?  They will continue to experiment with and learn from car observations for the next few days.
