Product Description
This hands on lab titled physics Olympics was created for middle school and early high school students and is the culmination of the physics unit I teach to my middle school students. Students travel to various stations to get actual hands-on practice of physics concepts, as well as measurement and graphing review. Students go through various Olympic “events” like a discus throw with a paper plate, etc. Concepts covered include kinetic energy, potential energy, getting mass using a triple beam balance, estimation, measuring with a metric ruler and meter stick, balanced forces, unbalanced forces, drawing a line graph, averaging, and conservation of energy. Hands on stations and questioning strategies differentiate for different learning styles. Perfect for standardized test review! This lab will be a great resource for any curriculum that includes metric system based measurements and general physics. Approximately two to three class periods in length.
