PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

★ ★ Air Awareness Parachute Race Lab ★ ★

This activity supports students in investigating the question: “Does the size of the parachute affect the speed the parachute falls to the ground?.


About This Activity:
This lesson asks students to analyze the relationship between the size of a parachute in regards to the length of time it takes for the parachute to fall. I use this lab as part of my 6th grade unit on air and atmosphere.

Students’ homework was to bring a plastic grocery bag and a penny to school. Students will work with a partner to make two parachutes, test the parachutes, record the data, and complete a close sentence conclusion.

The lab is written in a guided format to support students in learning the scientific method format. The teacher guide contains a recommended close sentence for students writing the hypothesis. It can be used for the whole class or to allow for differentiation by providing only to individual students. The conclusion is written in a close sentence format for students to support students in the content that should be included in a conclusion and to avoid using first person sentences (“I” , “we”) in writing.

Included In This Activity:
♦ 3 page lab
♦ 1 page teacher guide with pictures

Additional Materials Needed(not included):
♦ lightweight shopping bag & penny (1 per student), string, metric ruler, tape, scissors, pen, stopwatch & calculator (1 per student pair)
