#### Centers of Mass and Gravity

When you lecture on the center of mass and center of gravity, show this presentation as a note-taking guide for your physical science class. Pause at the fifth slide to let them find the center of mass for their pencils. Also ask them...

Lesson Planet

#### Matter and Energy

Does the change in energy of matter lead to a change in mass? Upcoming chemists compare the mass of equal-volume, but different-temperature liquids and materials both before and after a chemical reaction has occurred. In another...

Lesson Planet

#### Phase Changes of Water

A micro-unit on the phase changes of water includes three laboratory activities. Junior scientists compare the densities of ice and water, and then they do the same for cold and warm water. They examine freezing and boiling temperatures....

Lesson Planet

#### Inertial Mass, Weight, and Newton's Second Law of Motion

The stage is set for you to guide future physicists through three forceful activities about motion. In the first, learners experiment with rolling carts to discover how objects interact. In the second, they inspect images of an object in...
