Forces and direction

Which direction do you push to stop a moving ball?

Students indicate the direction they have to push to stop a moving ball. Forces can start or stop movement, and the changes in movement will be in the same direction as the force applied.  Children understand this intuitively in real life; this exercise helps them conceptualize it on paper.
