Reflection: Relevance The Weight of a Can of Soda Day 2 - Section 3: Further Exploration

 

To make learning more relevant, I'm constantly trying to connect abstract science concepts with the everyday lives of students. In this conference, Real World Application, I grab a pencil and ask students to explain how the pencil might lose mass. I also encourage students to think about what changes when you take the pencil to the moon... the mass or the weight. By quickly grabbing a pencil to use as an example, gravity, weight, and mass became more meaningful to these students.
