Gravity, Air & Eggs!
Students predict how a parachute works. They draw a design of a parachute. Students construct a parachute that is able to slow the fall of several pennies in a cup and an egg. They explain how a parachute creates air resistance to show objects falling by gravity.

Science: Gravity, Mass, and Weight
Third graders discover the interrelationship between weight, mass, and gravity by conducting several simple experiments. After individually weighing objects, they graph the weights on worksheets. Extensions include making flip books about the effects of gravity on objects and creating stories about a day without gravity.

Gravity Versus the Mighty Egg
Middle schoolers design, revise and construct a method for protecting an egg from cracking when it is dropped from a height. They work in small groups to develop their protection method and then collect and analyze data as a class when each group drops their egg.

The Force of Gravity
Third graders observe and analyze the forces of gravity. They are going to pretend to go on a bike ride and listen carefully as you describe the terrain. Students respond appropriately to the forces of gravity. They throw the ball into the air and force they exert pushes the ball forward.

How Things Fly
Students explain basic principles of aeronautics such as gravity and lift. In this How Things Fly lesson, students visit the interactive, hands-on How Things Fly gallery at the Smithsonian. Students perform three experiments that simulate airplane flight.

Students investigate the concept of gravity. For this physics lesson, students view a demonstration of the concept of gravity by using glue. Students identify why the glue won't go up into the air when the bottle is squeezed. Students draw a picture of something that will fall to the ground and another picture of an object that stays up.
