Newton's Discovery


Newton's Dark Secrets homepage

For ages 4 and older.

Sir Isaac Newton wondered what made objects fall to Earth. As the story goes, he was sitting under a certain kind of tree when the answer came to him: It was gravity that caused things to fall to Earth, the same force that keeps planets in orbit. What was it that fell from the tree that might have helped Newton think about gravity? Uncover the answer by using the color code to color the picture below.
