That's The Way The Ball Bounces

Season 2, Episode 3 of 26

Sid created a new sport called Play-Doh Ball! You just jump in the air, spin around and bounce the ball. When Sid attempts to play his new game, he bounces the Play-Doh ball and it promptly splats on the ground! At school, Sid and his friends investigate and discover that if a ball doesn't have enough elasticity, it won't bounce! (Educational objective - Elasticity)
