Cartoon Laws of Physics

Learners are introduced to Newton's Laws. They are shown excerpts from Road Runner, and students are asked to write new laws of their own, and then constrast them to the behavior of real world objects in motion, and to Newton's Laws. Learners are shown an excerpt of Daffy Duck as he steps off a cliff, which shows students that any body suspended in space remains in space until made aware of its situation.

I have really appreciated the connecting links to a variety of sources (i.e. National Geographic) and the teacher-tested lessons have been very helpful for me in planning my units. Thanks Lesson Planet!
