Falling Down

Students explore the concept of gravity.  In this gravity lesson, 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.

Lesson Planet has changed my whole teaching style. I am able to customize my lesson plans for relevance not by what is already available. I like the relevance to issues facing today's youth.
