*Great lab to use when discussing potential and kinetic energy using sports balls.
*Students measure the mass and record the height each ball bounces 3 times, taking the average.
*Employs all steps of the scientific method, including observations, inferences, and generating graphs.
*Easily uploaded to Google Drive to share with students. My students have personal devices, so we use the website linked in the document to create and insert graphs. If you don't have access to technology, the file is editable for students to create their own graphs.
*An extensive conclusion is also included.
*Students are always surprised when a certain ball doesn't bounce as high as another!
