How I Use It
This a great way to review Newton's Laws of Motion during the astronomy unit. Students often why they have to learn the laws of motion and this is an application of those laws.
My Take
This app makes me wish that I was teaching 8th grade again. Once my students learned about the Laws of Motion early in the year, this a great way to review those laws during the Astronomy unit. Students will feel like they are playing a game but they have to apply their prior learning to help them be successful. I could easily see my students downloading this app onto their own personal devices and playing it. They would be learning while having fun.
