(PLA ONLY) 4th-5th Grade Knott’s Berry Farm Energy in Motion Tour

May 30 @ 10:00 am 3:00 pm

Release Date: December 6th at 12pm

This event is for PLA Sage Oak students and families and is recommended for 4th-5th grade and advanced learners. All students must be accompanied by an adult.

Science comes to life with our rides and Knott’s Berry Farm! Our 4th-5th Grade Energy in Motion tour utilizes our varied selection of rides and roller coasters, giving you the opportunity to discuss subjects such as centrifugal force, mass, inertia, and more while you experience how each concept relates to our rides. The two-hour 4th-5th Grade Energy in Motion Tour begins at 1 pm. Students and their families may explore the park on their own before and after the tour. Please see height requirements below.

Experiments and Concepts

• Jaguar (48”) – Potential/Kinetic Energy, Friction, Air Resistance

• Log Ride (46”) – Buoyance/Density

• Bumper Cars (48”) – Action/reaction (Newton’s 3rd law), Force = Mass x Acceleration (Newton’s 2nd law)

• Pacific Scrambler (48”) – Centripetal force, Centrifugal feeling, Inertia, Compound Motion

• Coast Rider (54”) – Potential/Kinetic Energy, Lateral G-Force

Career Focus: Scientist, Engineer
