Graphing the Four Forces

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Using the Cartesian coordinate system, future flight experts plot points to determine whether or not an airplane will fly. With the four forces of weight, lift, drag, and thrust represented in different quadrants, your physics learners...
Lesson Planet

Rescue Mission Game

For Teachers 4th - 6th
Students conduct probability experiments.  In this rescue mission instructional activity, sudents play a game and collect statistical data.  They organize and interpret the data and determine the probability of success.  Students plot...

Applied Science -Technology (6B) Pre Lab

For Teachers 6th
Sixth graders discuss how simple machines overcome friction. In this simple machine lesson, 6th graders review the parts of a plane and how they make up for gravity and friction. They roll different objects down an inclined board...
Lesson Planet

Hey, Bernoulli...Need a Lift?

For Teachers 4th - 7th
Students investigate the principles of flight.  In this "flight" physics lesson, students brainstorm animals and objects that fly and any characteristics they have in common.  Students view a video and construct a boomerang according to...
Lesson Planet

Boomerangs Keep Coming Back

For Teachers 7th - 8th
Students investigate the flight of paper boomerangs. In this flight lesson, students examine the flight variables of paper boomerangs, which they make, by investigating the concepts of lift and drag. They examine what happens when an...
