Product Description
This is a fun, informative, and mind-blowing PowerPoint that addresses the question: "How Fast Are You Moving?" It answers the question by taking an amusing look at reference points or "frame of reference". It is a great way to introduce the topic of Motion and Relative Motion and it is also an eye opening way to teach a little bit about our place in the universe. In 21 slides you will see that we are all moving at astronomical speeds relative to the center of the Earth, the Sun, the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, and to the location of the Big Bang. Kids won't ever be able to look at things quite the same way again. You can hand out calculators and give the kids some practice doing some speed computations during the show or just let them be amazed. It is suitable for both middle and high school.
