#### Storyboard Text

• We're here to explain the laws of motion. Let's start with inertia
• That means an object will remain in its state of motion unless acted upon by a force﻿
• Follow us and we'll show you!
• We're here in my room with a tennis ball. Take it away Hanna!
• Thanks Eric! This ball will remain still until we move it.
• And that is inertia! It won't move until a force is applied. And that takes us to the next law.
• A force is a push or pull that makes an object move or stop
• Like Nat said, it makes objects move. I'm going to apply force to the tennis ball.
• Eric applied a force to the ball and it moved. Now let's talk about the 3rd law
• Action and reaction! When you apply force to an object...
• ...that object is going to apply force back! That's the reaction part
• So if the driver of the car applies force by slamming on the brakes, the car jolts forward along with the passengers
• We're not actually going to slam on the brakes right now, right?!
• Of course not! That's too dangerous
• But that's why you should always wear a seat belt when you're riding in a car
• And those are Newton's laws of motion!
• We hope you enjoyed! Bye!!
