Students discover that, since gravitational constants are different for places other than Earth, engineers must especially take gravity and weight into consideration when they design spacecraft, and moon or planetary vehicles.

I am a homeschooling mother of two kids. I am enjoying the diversity LessonPlanet offers me in materials and worksheets since my kids are 5 years apart in age and grade level.
