Our Step List

1. Chemical energy of the muscles allows us to throw a ball
2. The ball has energy which completes an electric circuit
3. The electric circuit initiates a fan which produces wind, and so energy of motion is produced
4. Energy of motion moves the ball which bumps into 2 other balls with spikes
5. These balls then bump into a balloon which pops
6. Inside the balloon is a ball which is thrown out due to energy of motion
7. This ball knocks into a car which knocks into another ball which bumps into a stick
8. The stick slides down a ramp, due to energy of motion and energy level
9. The stick touches a car which bumps into a ball
10. The ball bumps into a ping-pong paddle
11. The paddle hits a pendulum which spills a funnel filled with marbles (The paddle makes use of energy of motion which turns into energy level which initiates energy of motion again)
12. The marbles fall onto scales
13. When the scales move, a can of cola resting on one side of the scale falls and touches one domino which initiates the Domino Effect in which many dominoes fall
14. The last domino falls on a boat which is floating on water
15. On the boat is a doll that is putting a band-aid on another doll (The last series of events are due to energy of motion from one thing to another)
