Product Description
In Mass and Weight Lab activity students work together to build an understanding of the difference between mass and weight. The lab is divided into three parts:
Part A- Calculating the mass and weight of different objects using a triple beam balance/scale (small objects found in classroom such as calculators, cell phones, etc.). Then seeing how the weight of those objects would vary from planet to planet.

Part B- Jumping on different planets. Students conduct a broad jump contest and then analyze their jump here on earth and compare what they would likely be able to jump on other planets based on their gravity.

Part C- Questions to check their understanding of Mass and Weight. Some are general mass and weight questions and some are lab specific reflection questions.

As a teacher you may have half your students work on Part A and half on Part B and then switch and everyone then can work on Part C at the same time.

Students really enjoy this lab as they are able to get out of their lab and even jump around some in part B. I have also included a QR Code on top of the lab that students can scan if they need clarification on the differences between mass and weight.

Enjoy and Godspeed
