Scooter Ships

Students explore simple physics concepts such as push/pull, friction, and speed. In this physics/physical education activity, students work in co-operative groups to "build" a spaceship out of scooters and folded mats. Teams experiment with movement to determine the best placement of materials to achieve optimum speed and balance.

Lesson Planet has been fantastic!! I have been able to look at many different lessons based on my chosen theme and then just take the pieces I like and make it my own. It makes life so much easier and I have gleaned some great ideas. Thank you!!
