Hanging Around

Students 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, students talk about how their spring would respond on different planets, where the force of gravity is much different than that on Earth.
