This lesson consists of paper-hand outs, a two slide Power Point, and teacher notes.
The students use the scientific method to explore the outcome of a grasshopper race. An first glance the answer looks easy...but it isn't.
Many students want to defy the laws of physics to prove their answer correct.
NOTE: The power point is interactive. But since this is my first down load I didn't know how to post both a PDF and a PPT. Please email me if you would like the interactive version.
