Newton's Laws, Gravity, and Momentum Project
Students are given a number of options for how to present Newton's 3 Laws of Motion, The Law of Universal Gravitation, and The Law of Conservation of Momentum. Includes detailed grading rubric. This project is actually beneficial for the teacher as well, students give a new perspective on the laws, will often find new pictures, videos ect, or even create new videos and all students gain a much deeper understanding of the laws.
Suggestion -You could add the Law of Conservation of Energy to make an even more thorough review project. (I do this project in the fall before we start the energy unit, but if done later this would fit in well).
I typically give students 4-5 days to work in class (Depending upon ability of students), often spread over a 2 week period and allow students to work in small groups.
