This inquiry activity teaches students to understand how a seesaw works. It begins with a collaborative activity to engage a pair of students to balance a common seesaw by chat messaging with each other. Each student can interact with only one side of the seesaw. This ILS version allows a student to interact with the RIGHT side of the seesaw. See the Seesaw Lab description at for more details of how this collaborative experience works. After the collaborative activity, students work more systematically with the PhET Balancing Act lab to understand how exactly a seesaw works.
