ACTIVITY:
Ask children to jump up in the air and stay there. When they say they can’t, explain that gravity is the force that pulls everything close to the earth. Listen to the song, and have children follow directions.

CONCEPT:
Gravity is what keeps us on the ground.

 

Gravity Dance

Come on and do a little dance with me,
We can call it the gravity
‘Cause what goes up must sooner or later come down.


First you put your hands way up in the air
Try hard as you can to leave them there
But what goes up must sooner or later come down

 

CHORUS:
We’re pulled by gravity, gravity,
It keeps us on the earth you see
Even little birdies up in the air
Have to flap their wings or they won’t stay there


Isaac Newton said, “Now I see
Why the apple falls from the apple tree,
What goes up must sooner or later come down”.


Next you jump way up high in the air,
Try hard as you can to stay up there
But what goes up must sooner or later come down (Chorus)
