KS3 Physics - Gravity and Weight

KS3 Physics - Gravity and Weight

This resource is designed for lower ability students. It would work well with some background video about the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. Key points are that gravity is a force attracting all masses together. Gravity pulls us towards the centre of the Earth and keeps the Earth in orbit around the sun.
