Pendulums

For Teachers 7th - 12th
Students determine what factors effect the period of a pendulum.  In this pendulum lesson plan students complete a lab activity and report their findings. 
Lesson Planet

Never Push Your Pendulum

For Teachers 7th - 12th
Students investigate the behavior of pendulums and identify the variables that affect it.  In this pendulum lesson students complete a lab on pendulums, make conclusions about frequency and the period then conduct a controlled experiment.

Pendulum Patterns

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students identify the variables involved in the motion of a pendulum. In groups, they research how each different variable is related to the energy the pendulum produces. They share their results with the class and compare them with...

Swinging on a String

For Teachers 5th - 7th
Students explore how pendulums work and why they are useful in everyday applications. In a hands-on activity, they experiment with string length, pendulum weight and angle of release.
Lesson Planet

The Human Pendulum

For Teachers 7th - 12th
Young scholars examine how length, amplitude, and mass affect the period of a pendulum. They conduct an experiment that analyzes the variables affecting how a pendulum works, and identify the proportions that exist between the variables.
