Product Description
A resource for teaching the difference between mass and weight in space and the effects of gravity. The first activity is a body kinesthetic activity where students translate Earth jumping distances into how far they could jump on the moon! This packet also describes an integrated math activity and provides a printable where students calculate their weights on each of the planets. Students can even create a graph for this data (graph paper provided). The resource also describes a teaching presentation for this topic and includes document camera-ready content notes to display in a graphic format.

A simple visual demonstration is described that helps students learn the difference between mass and weight. There are recommended instructional videos on this topic and the provided result tables can be incorporated into an student (interactive) lab notebook.
