#### Harmonic Motion: Pendulum Lab

Several times throughout history, groups of soldiers marching in rhythm across a suspension bridge have caused it to collapse. Scholars experiment with pendulums, resonance, and force to determine why this would happen. First, pupils...

Lesson Planet

#### Riding on a Pendulum

A comprehensive resource gets fourth grade physical scientists making observations about the period of a pendulum and then applying knowledge to a playground swing. Through seven different stations, they will record observations and...

Lesson Planet

#### Work and Energy: Forms and Changes

Your introductory physical science class will be energized by this PowerPoint. They will be able to define energy, work, and power. They will be able to perform calculations for kinetic and potential energy. They will be able to describe...

Lesson Planet

#### Measures of Circular Motion

Physicists become Olympians in a competition using centripetal force. They ride a bicycle to comprehend relationships between linear and rotational motion. If you have an old-fashioned record player, it can be used to help pupils...

#### The Represented World: Recreational STEM

How are forces and motion important to a swing set? Scholars explore the concepts of force and motion using swing sets. In preparation for their own STEM design project, individuals take surveys and data from peers, complete labs on...

Lesson Planet

#### STEM Quick Challenges

Quick—save the resource! A STEM curricular document provides two to four activities in each grade for K-4 and a set of miscellaneous lessons appropriate at various grade levels. Scholars learn about STEM by engaging in various...

Lesson Planet

#### Energy of a Pendulum

Just a swingin'! Introduce physical science scholars to the energy forms associated with a pendulum using a simple interactive. Learners adjust the height from which the pendulum starts, then observe changes in potential, kinetic, and...

Lesson Planet

#### Verification of the Acceleration Due to Gravity by a Simple Pendulum

We know pendulums were used in ancient Egypt and Rome, but it is thought they were also used pre-recorded history. Scholars build their own simple pendulums in the sixth lesson of an 11-part series. Then, through an experiment varying...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulum Lab

How would a pendulum work on the moon or Jupiter? To answer that question scholars control up to two pendulums including their location, length, mass, and amplitude. Added controls include changing the friction and strength of gravity....

Lesson Planet

#### Projectile and Circular Motion, Torque

Introduce your young scholars to the concepts of circular motion, projectile motion, angular speed, simple harmonic motion, torque, center of mass, centripetal force, and Hooke's Law with a 86-slide presentation. The circular motion...

Lesson Planet

#### Swinging Pendulum

Get into the swing of things. Pupils use a pendulum to demonstrate the conversion of potential energy to kinetic energy and back. After measuring the speed of a pendulum and compare it to the calculated theoretical speed, they determine...

Lesson Planet

#### Understanding Energy (With a Pendulum)

Have you ever wanted to play with a giant pendulum? An experiment allows small groups to do just that. They gather data and make observations as they complete the included worksheet. The lesson lays out each instruction including how...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulum Time

Take your time with this instructional activity. Junior engineers read about different types of clocks and then work together to build a pendulum time-keeper. There are no hints as to how they might go about accomplishing this complex...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulum Catch

What a fun demonstration! Show the video, or better yet, have your physics learners construct this hex nut pendulum and test it themselves. Then have them discuss in groups why the single hex nut wraps around the finger. See if they can...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulums

Pendulums are simple, yet engaging demonstrations of harmonic motion. Dr. Carlson uses a very large example of a pendulum: a bowling ball on a string hanging from the ceiling! Learn from Dr. Carlson how you can teach about the strength...

#### Swinging Pendulum

Young scholars engage in an activity which demonstrates how potential energy (PE) can be converted to kinetic energy (KE) and back again. Given a pendulum height, students calculate and predict how fast the pendulum will swing by...

Lesson Planet

#### Time That Period

Physical science starters play with a pendulum in order to experience periodicity. Detailed procedures and a worksheet are included for day one. For day two, learners will use a graphing calculator to help them plot orbit data from a...

Lesson Planet

#### Stars and Slopes

More of a math lesson than physics or space science, high schoolers take a set of data and plot it on a log-log coordinate system. The write-up for day two was never completed, but day one, "Stars and Slopes," is complex and cohesive....

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulums

First-time physicists experiment with pendulums in this physics lesson. They vary the weight of the bob, record how long each takes to complete ten period swings, and then calculate the time for one period. They repeat the procedure,...

Lesson Planet

#### Double Pendulum

What's better than a pendulum for studying motion and periods? A double pendulum! Young physical scientists use an interactive to explore pendulum motion—times two. The resource boasts a host of parameters to change and a running graph...
