THE PHYSICS OF MOVING THINGS (AND NOT A MOMENTUM TOO SOON!)
Young scholars list three examples of momentum found in their local environment; describe the importance of mass and velocity on momentum; and determine what is necessary to produce the greatest amount of momentum within a particular system.

Ring Around the Rosie
Students work together to discover the concept of angular momentum. They participate in experiments in which they test rotation and relate it to an object's mass. They participate in a literacy activity in which they compare mythology to discover why spinning and weaving are common motifs.

Bicycle Wheel Demonstration: Practical Uses of Angular Momentum
Students balance a wheel using one of the wooden handles. In this physics lesson, students predict what direction the wheel rotates after the teacher lets it go. They explain how this demonstrates angular momentum.

Work and Energy
The first activity may not work for your class if you don't have access to an open area of 30 meters and two cars of different masses, but the remaining activities can be used in any physics course. They all involve the investigation of Newton's first law of motion.
