Description

After completing the unit students will be able to support an argument that the gravitational force exerted by Earth on objects is directed down. [Clarification Statement: “Down” is a local description of the direction that points toward the center of the spherical Earth.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include mathematical representation of gravitational force.]

Can This Resource Be Used for Virtual or Distance-Learning?

Yes. The station lab from the Exploration section and the PPT/INBs from the Explanation section have been created so that students can use them on campus or in a virtual learning environment.

Essential Questions:

1. What evidence do we have that the direction of the Earth’s gravitational force is downward, toward the center of the Earth?

2. Is the force of gravity the same in all locations on Earth?

What's Included in the 5E Lesson Plan:

Engage:

Objective and I CAN statements – 11x17 for class display

Blank Objective and I CAN statements – Available for editing

Engagement Activity - Includes specific instructions for teacher to engage students’ interest
