Students completed a gravity lab - Staying Up While Falling Down.
Using a pvc pipe, string, and different sizes of washers, students demonstrated
why planets closer to the Sun move faster than those farther away.
Students completed two labs which demonstrated weight has no
effect on how fast an object falls – Free Fall & Gravity on Earth.
Students completed two gravity labs. The first was Quicker. Students pushed sticks
of different lengths down at the same time.
This demonstrated why planets closer to the Sun move faster than planets
The second gravity lab was How Low
Can You Go? Students compared mass and weight.
Students completed the planets unit by taking the final unit
We began our gravity unit with a lecture.
