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.
Gravity is what keeps us on the ground.
Come on and do a little dance
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
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)
