Barbie Bungee

Students simulate a bungee jumping activity using a Barbie doll and rubber bands to examine linear functions. They collect data as they decide how many rubber bands to are needed for Barbie to jump safely from a given distance. They generate a scatterplot to determine the line of best fit. Finally, they answer the key question and demonstrate that their solutions work.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
