Title: I've Fallen.......
Description:

In this lesson, which was adapted from Gravity and Falling Objects, students predict what will happen when different objects are dropped at the same time from the same height, and then test their predictions. Next, they will observe objects of different masses being dropped and leaking cups being dropped into a bucket. The activities in this lesson will demonstrate that all objects fall at the same rate, regardless of their mass. Finally, students will predict what will happen when two balls of the same mass but different volumes--and then two balls of different masses but the same volume--are dropped at the same time from the same height.

This lesson results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.

Subject: Science (3 - 5)
Title: Marble Coaster
Description:

This lesson is adapted from a lesson entitled, "Marble Run", from the NASA Education Guide Amusement Park Physics with a NASA Twist.

Students will explore the effects of force, speed, motion, and gravity in creating a roller coaster track for a marble.

This lesson was created as part of the 2016 NASA STEM Standards of Practice Project, a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and NASA Marshall Space Flight Center.

Description:

Falling 101 investigates why and how things fall, and explores common student misconceptions about gravity, inertia, and air resistance.

Title: Mindy's Moonball | Ready Jet Go!
Description:

Children will learn about physical science and motion and stability with gravity in this game from Ready, Jet, Go. Play basketball with Mindy on Earth and across planets with this game from Ready, Jet, Go. Players must tweak each level's obstacles so that the ball can be guided into the hoop, all while experimenting with force and gravity levels from planet to planet.

Title: Forces of Gravity and Air Resistance
URL: https://aptv.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/midlit11.sci.splgrav/forces-of-gravity-and-air-resistance/
Description:

In this blended lesson supporting literacy skills, students watch videos about gravity and investigate the motion of falling objects on Earth and on the Moon. They examine how the force of gravity acts on falling objects and how air resistance counteracts gravity. This resource is part of the Inspiring Middle School Literacy Collection. This lesson is a great resource to use to give students background information on gravity and forces before they conduct a test of a falling object.
