Hanging Around

Pupils explore weight by building a spring scale and observing how it responds to objects with different masses. Each team of students can make their own spring scale by following steps which are specifically outlined in the plan. As an extension, pupils talk about how their spring would respond on different planets, where the force of gravity is much different than that on Earth.

Lesson Planet was a great help to me during my student teaching. The site allowed me to find the lessons and support materials necessary for me to create lesson plans.
