    Gravity Lesson // Jennifer Van Den Broeke

    I really liked this lesson. It is a fun way to get kids to think about what they already know about gravity and this to test it out. I like lesson like this one that really allows the kids to explore. Nice lesson.

In this Science NetLinks lesson, students explore how the Earth's and moon's gravity affects the path of a rocket launched into space. The focus of this lesson is on Earth's gravitational pull, as well as forces and how the motion of an object changes.
