Muscles and Bones in Space
Being an astronaut takes not only high mental acuity, but also a high level of physical fitness, especially for those who spend a long amount of time away from Earth, such as the astronauts serving on the International Space Station. Without the constant pull of Earth's gravity on the body, space travelers quickly lose bone density and muscle mass.

Report Writing: Athletes and Gravity
Using the fascinating topic of extreme sports, learners are prepared to research and write a report. Unfortunately, most of the Internet links for the research are no longer valid, but the lesson can still be implemented by having pupils conduct their own web search on the topic.

How to Think About Gravity
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 of humor in this video makes it entertaining to most middle schoolers, so consider showing it in your earth science, astronomy, or physical science class.

Force and Motion
Young scholars experiment with force and motion. In this force and motion lesson, students test gravity using a variety of objects. Young scholars rotate through a series of stations which use force, motion, friction, and inclines. Students predict outcomes and compare to results.

Ellipses and Kepler's First Law
The class examines graphs in the form r = F(Â¿Â¿) in polar coordinates (r, Â¿Â¿), in particular with the circle, ellipse and other conic sections. They determine the nature of an ellipse by studying the role of the semimajor axis and eccentricity.
