Students research physical science by completing worksheets. In this gravity instructional activity, students read assigned text regarding the rotation of Earth and the gravitational force caused by the speed of which it rotates. Students complete a Frayer model regarding the information they read and conduct a class discussion.
High schoolers consider Einstein's theories of Relativity. In this physics lesson, students learn the questions that led Einstein to his theories. High schoolers then create "Einsteinian Thought Experiments" of their own. This lesson includes 3 videos and 1 interactive activity.
At the end of a general physics course focused on light and electricity, you can administer this exam. Concepts covered include electromagnetism, circuits, induction, light rays, lenses and mirrors, characteristics of light, electron energy levels, and radioactive decay. Questions come in a combination of styles, from multiple choice, to analyzing diagrams, to solving computational problems. Written for a college level course, this may also work well with high schoolers.
