Oh what fun! Make a forceful impact on your physics fans by having them construct mini air boats. They use a balloon to propel paper boats across their tabletops. They choose a variable to alter: size, shape, materials, and fly their boats again. This is an exciting exploration of Newton's laws of motion, and the teacher's notes leave you well-prepared.

I am a very busy Head of Department and often don't have time to create worksheets and other resources for my classes. Lesson Planet has helped me find many useful and interesting activities to support my students' learning.
