How to calculate your weight on different planets, satellite or ISS?
- 1 sheet with Flash cards for calculate (kg versus newton) on Earth, Moon, Mars and I.S.S.
- 1 sheet for example with an astronaut.
- 1 practice sheet.
- 1 sheet for difference between Mass versus Weight and 1 Challenge problem.
This is an activity where students go to a specific website (which is linked in the file), read a short story about space, and answer 6 comprehension questions.
This is a great computer lab activity!
You can print the sheet and give to students, or give students access to the file and they can typ
This is a fun activity in which students will convert their Earth weight to their weight on the other planets. Once the data table is completed, students will construct a bar graph of their information.
