PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Extremely fun inquiry-based astronomy lesson that allows students to simulate meteorite impacts and how they shape the objects that they collide by dropping balls into containers of flour and sand to form craters. Students will explore and discover how things like mass and energy affect how craters are formed and gain an overall better understanding on how objects in the universe are shaped.

"Meteorite Madness" comes with ready-to-print lab sheets, data tables, and classroom discussion questions. Also slides that define meteorites and examples of energy calculations. You'll be able to use this for the rest of your career.

This activity does take some prep time but is totally worth it. "Meteorite Madness" is very thought provoking for students and a lot of FUN!!!
