Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Rocking the Boat

Students work together to discover the concepts of stability and equilibrium. They examine how equilibrium is related to an item's center of mass. They create their own action scene in a literacy activity.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Perching Parrot

Students explore the concepts of center of mass and static equilibrium by seeing how non-symmetrical objects balance. They also analyze why all forces on an object must cancel out exactly for an object to be stationary.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Paperplane Flying Circus

Young scholars create paper airplanes. They compare and contrast the airplanes created in class and test them out. They adjust their airplanes until they all fly. They discuss the forces that allow flight to occur.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Motion Through the Ages

Eighth graders conduct internet research to produce a timeline of man's growth in understanding of concepts of motion and planetary motion through history.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Study of Gravity Scientists

Eighth graders research scientists that have made major contributions to the study of gravity and create a timeline of these scientists and events.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Jungle Gym Drop

Students drop a variety of objects from a jungle gym to explore how different shapes, sizes, and masses relate to forces and motion.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Siphon Pump

Pupils determine the basic types of pumps and how they work in terms of pressure, velocity, and elevation differences. They build two examples of gravity-driven water pumps.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Pumps

Students examine the basic types of pumps. They build a gravity-driven water pump and solve a mystery using their knowledge of pressures and pumps.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Gravity Launch

Students use an online interactive to launch a rocket from earth. They have control over the angle and thrust of the rocket to discover the relationship between the two.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Gravity

Seventh graders progress through the Science Court: Gravity CD-ROM program. They read about and discuss how gravity was discovered. They complete review worksheets in preparation for the test.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### How Do Airplanes Get Off the Ground

Students construct various types of paper airplanes, exploring action and reaction forces by conducting a paper airplane rodeo. Students then discuss how Newton's Third Law of Motion affected their planes.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Falling

Students explore the role of gravity as a force in falling. They use the Internet to research gravity.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Toys in Space

Studentsexplore how gravity affects the operation of toys and simple machines. They watch a video and experiment with simple machines.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Discovery- Bouncing high, bouncing low

Students experiment with a variety of sports oriented balls to predict which ball bounce higher when dropped form the same height.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### What Goes Up Must Come Down

Students observe the principles of gravity and extend their understanding of the concept through experimentation.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Pine Wood Derby Prompt

Eighth graders use Newton's Laws of Motion to assist a troop in making a winning car in the Pine Wood Derby.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### A Veritable Circus: Investigating Balance

Students experiment with balance to learn about verticle balance, horizontal balance, center of gravity, and become active problem solvers and "scientists." Student engage in manipulating and changing experimental materials.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Earth's Orbit Lesson

Tenth graders devise a computational model to explore how the orbit of the Earth might change if its velocity were different. Using accurately recorded data, 10th graders defend a scientific argument.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### In What Direction Do Seeds Grow?

Students predict and examine the direction seeds grow and thereby explore the effects gravity has on seeds and plants. They perform this inquiry in-class by keeping track of how beans grow.
