This set of class demonstrations will bring your Structures unit to life!
Each demonstration has two sheets. The teacher information page explains the steps to follow and gives you the background on what’s happening in the demo. The student page has leading questions that prompt students to engage in the Predict, Observe, Explain cycle of scientific thinking.
- internal forces
- center of gravity
- truss strength
- blank page for your own demos
All demos use readily available household materials and have been fully tested in my class, so you know that they’ll work in yours!
Just print and teach!
