Build a See Saw with Bricks4Kidz®! This favorite playground fixture is actually a type of lever! It also illustrates Newton’s second law of motion – Force = mass x acceleration.

The faster you want them to go up, the harder you have to push. Playground physics! Vocabulary includes force, mass, acceleration.
