Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Falling Objects - Section 2: Engage

 

I have included a quick video clip of the students watching the astronauts on the moon (video).  I end with my group, that a video quickly captures their attention and keeps them all focused.  As you can see from the clip, some of them aren't even blinking!  A good video selection can be an effective tool to both captivate and engage.

Falling Objects

Unit 2: Force and Motion
Lesson 7 of 15

Objective: SWBAT develop an understanding of the gravity concept.

Big Idea: In honor of the great Chicken Little, today's class will have stuff falling from the sky. Students will determine if objects fall at the same speed by testing a variety of objects as they let them fall from above
