Free Falling in Outer SpaceLesson Planet
3 mins 6th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
How do satellites orbit the earth? Technically they are free-falling, but missing Earth's surface! Being explained in great detail and with entertaining animation, these concepts are sure to amaze your starling scientists! Another plus...
Free Fall…From SPACE!/Nanotechnology in the ClassroomLesson Planet
9th - 12th
Provide the details about Felix Baumgartner's sky jump from the far reaches of our atmosphere, 39,045 meters up! Then get your physics free fallers to evaluate the factors that played a role in his acceleration, the time to reach maximum...
Free Falling: Working with RadicalsLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Look out, radical falling! The lesson plan shows the class how to evaluate formulas that include radicals. They involve escape velocity, sight distance, and free fall times. Pupils then discuss what occupations may use radicals in their...
Free Fall Lab: Reaction Time and Hang TImeLesson Planet
9th - 12th
Three activities are lined up to give physicists experience with reaction and hang times. They catch a falling meter stick by sight and by sound. They also jump and use the distance to calculate hang time. In a final practice problem,...
Entropy & Free EnergyLesson Planet
15 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
An understanding of chemical reactions really boils down to two concepts: entropy and enthalpy. Follow along with this instructional video as it explains how these two principles are used to calculate Gibbs free-energy which...
Forces that Oppose Motion - It's Not Just Science FrictionLesson Planet
9th - 12th
A very scientific-looking but appealing set of slides helps you teach young physicists about the force of friction. First explain what static friction is and demonstrate how to solve problems. Then introduce kinetic friction and the...
Free Fall Clock and Reaction Time!Lesson Planet
8th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Can you use gravity to create a clock? Pupils explore reaction time, acceleration, and gravity in a timely lesson. They test how quickly each can catch a dropped ruler, find average reaction times, and calculate percent error.
Chain Drop ExperimentLesson Planet
1 min 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Test your class' understanding of free falling objects with a video demonstration that shows two equal weights dropped simultaneously. One hits the ground first, which is contrary to what students understand about the acceleration due to...
Distorting Madonna in Medieval ArtLesson Planet
3 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Why was the prominent figure of Mary, the mother of Jesus, in medieval paintings commonly painted out of proportion? Discover the deep religious roots connected to European medieval art beginning in the sixth century. This video offers a...
