Falling Down

Students explore the concept of gravity.  In this gravity lesson plan, students drop objects of different masses but that have the same shape to determine if they fall at the same rate.  Students use their calculators and motion detectors to determine if the two objects will hit the ground at the same time even though they have different masses.
