Using different surfaces, they make predictions as to what type of force each will exert, and they experiment to determine if their predictions are correct.

As a first year teacher, Lesson Planet is a precious lifeline! I am able to gather ideas and build on the ideas of veteran teachers. Lesson Planet is a huge time saver, especially for a first year teacher who is trying very diligently not to become overwhelmed!
