May the Force Be With You: Thrust

Students study how propellers and jet turbines generate thrust. This lesson plan focuses on Isaac Newton's 3rd Law of Motion, which states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Student teams explore the difference in how jet engines create thrust compared to propeller engines. Some excellent extension activities are imbedded in this plan, which lead to deeper understanding of Newton's 3rd Law.

Lesson Planet has been nothing short of amazing! Lesson Planet is a part of my weekly lesson planning regimen. I teach my children the importance of collaboration and I think Lesson Planet is an excellent example of how collaboration can help improve ones learning.
