science day: why do we have to wear a seat belt?

continuing with janice vanCleave’s play and find out about science:

why do we have to wear a seat belt?

the clay represents a person.
the car comes to a sudden stop when it hits the pencil. look what happened to our clay person.
the ribbon is our clay person's seat belt
after impact, our person is safe and sound in their seat belt

this science experiment kinda reminds me of an elementary school version of scared straight.
