This Pendulum Time lesson plan also includes:
Take your time with this lesson. Junior engineers read about different types of clocks and then work together to build a pendulum time-keeper. There are no hints as to how they might go about accomplishing this complex task, so you may want to conduct some research or try a few of your own engineering designs before introducing the activity to your class.
- Common Core State Standards for scientific literacy can be met using the reading materials
- Constructing a clock that accurately keeps time may be too much of a challenge for learners who are not in high school
