Sir Isaac Newton’s first law of motion is basically an action that Sir Isaac Newton, a famous scientist and mathematician, observed in the universe. The word “law” just means that this statement applies to all things, not matter what size. The first law of motion states:

An object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion.

That means that an object that is standing still, like maybe a book wants to keep staying still. An object that is moving, like a soccer ball wants to keep moving. This law of physics helps us understand the world around us.

We are going to do a demonstration of the first law of motion!
