Balanced and Unbalanced Forces

Ninth graders are introduced to Newton's Laws of Motion, with a focus on the First Law. In groups, they build a test car using compact discs as wheels to determine how the forces act on the car in a crash. They also develop a restraint system for their crash-test dummy and present to the class how it works, the results of use of it in the car and what improvements need to be made.

Using Lesson Planet has helped me to reach more students. There are so many great ideas out there and using the site has made it easier to come up with new ideas and make old plans even better!
