Holiday Movie – Newton: A Tale of Two Isaacs

Posted on: November 9, 2015

Found this funny short movie about Isaac Newton. (Too bad the subtitle is in Spanish). newton

This movie introduce children to this great Scientist cum Mathematician, Isaac Newton, and explain the three famous laws of motion discovered by him (though I do doubt that the way he got the idea was like what is shown in the movie. Kind of funny to me). He was the first person to accurately describe gravity, to answer questions like why things fell toward the earth, why the moon stayed near the earth but didn’t come crashing down onto the earth, or fly out of its orbit.

Note: Must clarify, the assistant in the movie is fictitious.

Good reference to teach using the movie: http://www.teachwithmovies.org/guides/newton-inventors.html
