Inertial Mass, Weight, and Newton's Second Law of Motion

The stage is set for you to guide future physicists through three forceful activities about motion. In the first, learners experiment with rolling carts to discover how objects interact. In the second, they inspect images of an object in motion and graph the average speed over time to find the acceleration. Finally, they design and calibrate an inertial balance that could be used to measure weight in outer space. These challenges are followed by your selection of assessments.

Lesson Planet has helped me find a variety of hands-on activities that have really worked with my Bilingual Spanish Biology classes and my ELL Biology students.
