An object at rest stays at rest unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

Our Step List

1. Hit the ice block
2. The ice breaks and the weight falls onto the scale
3. The other end of the scale pushes up causing the roller skate to roll down a ramp
4. The roller skate pushes an open water gun so it closes
5. A string attached to the water gun moves forward causing the platform to rotate
6. The arm attached to the platform hits a series of wooden blocks
7. The last wooden block hits one side of a popsicle stick causing it to rise up
8. The rising popsicle stick releases a metal sphere through a see-through water bottle
9. The ball drops into a basket on the ferris wheel causing it to rotate
10. The rotating ferris wheel pulls an attached string causing it to raise a cardboard ramp
11. A car on top of the cardboard ramp moves backwards
12. A string on the car pulls the flap that is keeping the cereal in the box
13. The cereal falls into the hand-made papier-mache bowl
