Christa's Lost Lesson: Newton’s LawsLesson Planet
6th - 8th
New ReviewHow do the laws of motion work in space? Learners explore Newton's laws of motion in different experiments as part of the Christa's Lost Lessons series. They rotate around the room in three stations to experience each law in action using...
Straw RocketsLesson Planet
7th - 8th CCSS: Designed
New ReviewScholars become rocket scientists as they take off on a journey exploring Newton's laws of motion. After learning the laws of motion, pupils design their own investigations using straw rockets. They highlight their literacy skills in a...
Blade Runners—Science of the Winter OlympicsLesson Planet
