Subject: Science (3)
Title: Super Swingers
Description: Students will construct and test pendulums with varying weights, string types, release positions, and lengths.  They will collect, graph, and analyze data to see which variables affect the speed of the pendulum in order to predict the movement of new pendulums. Then they will then use this data to solve a real-world problem and explain their thinking. This lesson results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.
