Students investigate Newton's Laws of Motion and the Law of Conservation of Energy. They examine how a ball and half-ball behave and relate these laws to what happens to the ball. Students produce a graph of the data collected and compare the bounces of the half-ball to the bounces of the racquetball.

Lesson Planet is a great portal that has given me a lot of great ideas for topics for which I have less preparation, such as physical science.
