If you’d like your students to see the physics around them, take advantage of their cell phones and have them take photographs of physics phenomena. This is my new favorite thing because my students now see the world differently.
Students work in a cooperative group to photograph mechanics or kinematics phenomena including potential and kinetic energy, elastic energy, work and power. They’ll surprise you with their cleverness and what they’ve learned.
You get a power point presentation on the topic with sample photos, student hand out and teacher instructions. The student form and power point are editable.
