Today, students completed The Pull of the Planets lab. In this lab, students use a plastic sheet in an embroidery hoop to demonstrate gravity. They place different objects on the sheet to see how much the “gravitational force” of the object warps space.

Student then began to work on a gravity worksheet, Gravity Explorations. Students determine how much they would weigh on the other planets.
Honors Science – Students began a project, Autobiography of a Meteor & Comet. Students are to write about an autobiography of a comet and meteor, using what they know about both.
