Forces At Work/Gravity
Students view a video to introduce forces and how they work. In this video force lesson, students experiment to find the force of gravity. Students 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.

Center of Gravity
Students work with boxes and weights to find the center of gravity. In this simple center of gravity experiment, students find success in using weights to move the center of gravity. Students will be assessed at the end of the lesson as to how the center of gravity changes.

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 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 instructional activity, students predict how these objects will fall in a vacuum tube. They write a report explaining experimental results and conclusion.

Jungle Gym Drop
Students investigate gravity, force and motion. In this motion of objects lesson plan, students drop various objects from a jungle gym and collect, measure and observe their data. Students describe the forces that affect the motion of their objects.

TE Activity: The Great Gravity Escape
Students 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. They look at how engineers design huge rockets so that they can get out of the Earth's gravity.

How Can a Clock Part Measure Gravity?
Students measure motion. For 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
Students investigate the concepts of gravity and motion, revolution and rotation. In this gravity lesson, 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.
