Crash Course Kids: Defining Gravity - Episode 4.1

So, if gravity pulls everything down, then why don’t things on the bottom of the Earth get pulled down into space?

In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about gravity and explains that when we talk about gravity pulling things down, what we really mean is gravity is pulling things TOWARD the Earth. Really, it’s all about attraction.

This first series is based on 5th grade science. We’re super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!
