Huff and Puff Experiment

The students in Mrs. Salge's 2nd grade class have been learning about how wind is a force that can move objects.  The students participated in an AIMS experiment called "Huff and Puff".  They had to graph how many puffs of air it took to move assorted objects the distance of 3 feet.  Objects they experimented with included:  clothespins, balloons, crayons, pencils, Kleenex, leaves, yarn, and pebbles.  They discovered that the lighter the object was the fewer puffs of air it took to move the object 3 feet.
