Forces At Work/Gravity
Learners view a video to introduce forces and how they work. For this video force lesson, students experiment to find the force of gravity. Learners record and draw conclusions about gravity based on their experiment. Students self evaluate by completing the lesson outline.

An Egg-celent Gravity Experiment
Fifth graders record at least four hypotheses concerning what happens when they drop an egg from a high spot. They record at least five observations or supporting ideas about the egg drop. Students test gravity by dropping an egg from a ladder and record their results with 100% accuracy.

The Art of Science: Gravity
Through a series of experiments and demonstrations, fifth graders will learn about gravity. They will make predictions, drop various objects, write down their observations, and try to understand gravity through balance. This lesson plan seems as though it is intended for a summer or after school program.

Gravity Gets You Down
Students design an experiment to investigate how objects with different masses fall. In this physics lesson, students predict how these objects will fall in a vacuum tube. They write a report explaining experimental results and conclusion.

TE Activity: The Great Gravity Escape
Young scholars examine the principles of orbit using water balloons and a piece of string to see how gravity and the velocity of a spacecraft balance to form an orbit. They determine how an object can escape the gravity of the sun or planet.

How Can a Clock Part Measure Gravity?
Students measure motion. In this gravity and motion lesson, students make a simple pendulum and use the TI-73 calculator to calculate how acceleration varies with pendulum length. Students record data from their experiments on the provided chart and step by step instructions on using the TI-73 are included.

Gravity and Motion
Learners investigate the concepts of gravity and motion, revolution and rotation. In this gravity lesson plan, students watch a video about gravity. They determine what their ages would be on different planets based on their revolution around the sun.

Center of Gravity
Between the pull of gravity and the push of air pressure, it's a wonder animals can balance or move at all. With a hands-on lesson about the center of gravity, learners discuss their own experiences with the topic, then work with partners to experiment with the concept through making balances, as well as trying to balance themselves in different circumstances.

Gravity In The Universe
High schoolers assess and explore gravity in the Universe via several short video lessons. They analyze why this science matters and the history of Sir Isaac Newton's law of gravity. A variety of questions are asked within this lesson for each student to answer.
