Product Description

Science teachers have an obligation to instill critical thinking and skepticism in their students. If my students can calculate kinetic energy as (1/2)mv^2 but also buy a Power Balance bracelet or accept media reports of paranormal activity, I feel I have failed them.

So I insert explicit lessons in skepticism and critical thinking into the curriculum throughout the school year. This is one of them.

This activity compares the science of meteors and apparent weightlessness with how those phenomena are represented in a Federal Express television advertisement.

My hope is that such lessons strengthen students' thinking skills I'm the classroom and (more importantly) beyond. I developed this activity for use with my own students.
