#### Up, Up and Away! - Airplanes

Oh, if only Sir Isaac and Bernoulli could see us now. Even Orville and Wilbur would be amazed by what engineers have designed using their ideas. Next generation engineers put these principles to use as they use what they learn about...

Lesson Planet

#### Adventure Engineering Challenge: Asteroid Impact

Oh, no! An asteroid is on a collision course with Earth!. The challenge, should your students choose to accept it, is to design underground survival caverns to shelter people for one year. Over the course of eight lessons, engineering...

Lesson Planet

#### Our Universe

A five-lesson unit introduces young astronomers to the current understanding of the universe. They learn about the evidence scientists use to support the Big Bang Theory, explore the life cycles of stars, and examine technologies that...

Lesson Planet

#### ScienceWeb Australia: Years 9-10

Science Web Australia presents a collection of three units designed for English speaking high schoolers and utilizing resources available online. The first unit focuses on ecosystems, the second on plate tectonics, and the third on the...

Lesson Planet

#### Distance = Rate x Time

Every year, the moon moves 3.8 cm farther from Earth. In the 11th part of 22, classes use the distance formula. They determine the distance to the moon based upon given data and then graph Galileo spacecraft data to determine its movement.

Lesson Planet

#### Planetary Distances on the Playground

Earth is 149,600,000 km, or 92,957,130.4 miles, from the sun. Young astronauts create an interactive model to learn the distances between planets. Nine groups, each representing a different planet, are spread around at class-calculated...

Lesson Planet

#### Displacement vs. Distance Worksheet

Displacement is a foundational concept for physics pupils. If they are having trouble discerning it from distance, this activity can help clear things up. The first page is essentially a piece of graph paper. It has a compass rose and a...

Lesson Planet

#### Dependence of Light Intensity on Distance

Hopefully you have a sensor interface for your physics class to use with graphing calculators when collecting data with a light sensor. If so, read on. Use this resource for learners to predict and then test whether or not the intensity...

Lesson Planet

#### Go The Distance Car Construction

Students build and program a car to drive a specific challenge distance.They must at the end of the lesson, have the car that stops the closest to a challenge distance.

Lesson Planet

#### Distances

How can you determine the distance between two objects when one is incredibly far away? Discover how early astronomers and mathematicians calculated quantities such as the distance between Earth and the Sun in an insightful video. The...

Lesson Planet

#### Distance-Time and Velocity-Time Graphs

It's story time! Show your class how to use a distance-time graph to tell a story. They learn to draw and analyze a graph using distance and time data. The story then continues to compare velocity and time.

Lesson Planet

#### Using Map Scales to Figure Distances and Areas

The asteroid is getting closer and the question is whether the state of Alabraska is large enough for the shelter calculated in the previous activity. Teams determine the scale of their project and then use the scale on the map to...

Lesson Planet

#### Distance vs. Displacement

Home is where your displacement is zero. Scholars practice solving distance versus displacement problems of increasing difficulty. They begin with two stage motion and, by the wizard level, each problem has four stage motion to consider....

Lesson Planet

#### Eclipse Over America — Relative Sizes and Distances of the Sun and Moon

Here's a lesson that is sure to overshadow others! Introduce young astronomers to the unique size and distance relationship between the sun and moon with an activity from a larger series exploring space. A short video illustrates the...

Lesson Planet

#### Solar System Distance

Learners study the distances between the Sun, planets, and small bodies. They create a model demonstrating the scale distances.

Lesson Planet

#### Distance and Special Relativity: How Far Away is Tomorrow?

The confusing negative properties of time and distance are clarified, quickly and succinctly, in a super-short clip. Make this a part of your presentation on the speed of light, or special relativity.

Lesson Planet

#### Using Excel and Simple Machines to Give Students a Feel for Work, Force, and Distance Interactions

Use Excel-generated graphs after experimenting with a simple pulley device, in order to demonstrate the relationship between work, force, and distance. The graphs help to illustrate the concepts that learners uncover during the experiment.
