Baseball vs. Basketball! A Gravity Demonstration


  • a basketball
  • a baseball
  • Paper
  • Pencil/pen
  • Adult supervision

Directions: Hold the basketball and the baseball at the same height above the ground. Then, think of which ball will land on the ground first. Then, drop the balls at the same time! If you did this correctly, they would have landed on the ground at the same time! This is because the gravity on Earth is equal in most places, so the gravity is pulling them equally!
