Product Description

Give middle school students a better understanding of their relative weight on different planets as they have fun finding out how heavy or how light they would be elsewhere in the solar system!

This worksheet has students take either their own weight (or another weight of their choosing) and use it to calculate their weight on other planets in our solar system and the moon. (The calculation is a simple single multiplication, with an example provided.) They also calculate the weight of a zebra and a textbook on the other planets. There are then 12 follow-up analysis questions.

Standards: NGSS MS-PS2-5 and MS-ESS1-2
