8th Grade Science Resource Book: Unit 2 - PhysicsLesson Planet
8th CCSS: Adaptable
Get things moving with this extensive collection of physical science resources. Covering the fundamentals of measurement, graphing, lab safety, and experimental design as well as the specific scientific concepts of velocity,...
Circuit Diagrams: Switching CircuitsLesson Planet
4th - 6th
Use a lab sheet on circuit diagrams in your electricity unit. Fifth graders draw two series circuits with diagrams, based on two examples. A science experiment prompts learners to use 3x5 cards to illustrate the way a series circuit works.
Verification of the Acceleration Due to Gravity by a Simple PendulumLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
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...
Chain Drop ExperimentLesson Planet
1 min 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Test your class' understanding of free falling objects with a video demonstration that shows two equal weights dropped simultaneously. One hits the ground first, which is contrary to what students understand about the acceleration due to...
Zero G Ferrofluid FailLesson Planet
11 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
What is it like to go up in a zero gravity airplane? Physics Girl shares her experiences and the science experiments she brought along as part of her video series. From the way your body feels to the failed experiments, she laughs and...
How to Think About GravityLesson Planet
5 mins 6th - 10th CCSS: Adaptable
What goes up must come down, but there is more to the phenomenon than meets the eye! As it turns out, any two objects attract to each other. The formula for Newton's law of universal gravitation is introduced in the explanation. A touch...
How Do Geckos Defy Gravity?Lesson Planet
5 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Geckos are reptilian superheroes, defying gravity to climb walls and hang from ceilings, but where did they get these amazing superpowers? Watch this fun video as it examines the amazingly designed feet of these unique animals and how...
Staying Grounded with Gravity: A Science Exploration TrailLesson Planet
5th - 6th
What a great idea for scientific inquiry. This lab was intended for use as children explored a college campus, but it could be used anywhere. They go to three different places on campus and conduct a simple experiment that shows an...
Determination of Centre of Gravity of Irregular Lamina Using the Plumb-line MethodLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
When an object, such as a boat, has a low center of gravity, it is more stable. In the first lesson of an 11-part series, scholars use plumb lines to determine the center of gravity in irregularly shaped objects. After practicing, a...
On The Space Shuttle You Can Eat All You Want, and Still Weigh NothingLesson Planet
4th - 8th
New Newtonians experiment with gravity and weightlessness in this fun activity. They watch as a rubber band, stretched by the weight of a clothespin, returns to its normal shape as they both fall to the ground. Consider having kids video...
Simple Machines: Force and MotionLesson Planet
2nd - 4th CCSS: Adaptable
Get things moving with this elementary science unit on simple machines. Through a series of nine lessons including teacher demonstrations, hands-on activities, and science experiments, young scientists learn about forces, motion, and...
