Measuring Work

Students explore what work is, measure work done in moving an object, and tell how energy is related to work in both machines and the human body. In this measuring work lesson plan, students walk up a flight of stairs, measure the height of one stair, weigh themselves, and calculate how much work is done when they walk up a flight of stairs.
