This fun, simple lab requires very little set up on your part and is a hit with the kids.
This lab will allow your students to explore how force and mass are related, they will graph their data and recognize that the slope of their data produces gravitational acceleration. Your students will identify experimental variables as well as calculate % error.
There is a fun inquiry twist at the end of the lab that you can do if time permits. This inquiry part will let the students design their own experiment and collect data.
