Gravity, mass and weight

Gravity, mass and weight

The "True of false" opening activity is a great way to assess their understanding before the lesson starts. Emphasise throughout the lesson that gravity is a force between ALL objects (many students have been taught lower down the school that gravity is only what pulls them to the earth). The work sheet should give a good assessment of the understanding of the lesson. The last two questions will really stretch their (and maybe their teacher's!) understanding.
