What a great idea for scientific inquiry. This lab was intended for use as children explored a college campus, but it could be used anywhere. They go to three different places on campus and conduct a simple experiment that shows an aspect of gravity. Then they answer the related questions on the worksheet to help them think like scientists.
These full-color handouts feature two activities. The first is a reading on comets, meteors, and meteoroids. Your space science learners will examine ten phrases and determine which of the three each characterizes. The second activity involves a Web Quest in which participants visit websites about black holes, gravity, and the use of robots in space exploration. These activities are most appropriate for your upper elementary scientists.
The focus of this resource is to teach young students about some of the basic components of force and motion. Students view slides which give examples of gravity, force, motion, magnets, and wind. Then, they must choose one of those terms to correctly fill-in the answers to 5 statements.
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. They complete journal entries that show understanding of the concepts.
Students explore physics by analyzing a book they read in class. In this gravitational forces lesson, students read a story in class titled "What is Gravity?" and identify the importance of gravity on our planet. Students answer study questions about gravity and the earth's motion.
