How many synonyms for the word “rebound” can you find?

  • if you found 9 – 10 words… you score 3 points. Way to score!!
  • if you found 7 – 8 words… you score 2 points. Great shot!
  • if you found  4 – 6 words… you’re on the right court. Try 1 free throw. 
  • if you found 0 – 3 words… you’ve fouled out. Try again next game! 

Review Sir Issac Newton’s First, Second and Third Laws of physics

Quotes to keep in mind

“What goes up, must come down”

“For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction”

If at first, you don’t succeed, try again when no one is looking”
