Jump Into Gravity

Instructional Resource

Get prepared to jump into the exciting world of gravity! In this lesson, students will participate in a hands-on activity that demonstrates that gravity is a force that pulls all objects down. They will better understand that “down” is a relative direction based on where you are located on Earth’s surface and that everything is being pulled toward Earth’s center.

This grade-five resource aligns with:

5-PS2-1 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interaction

5-PS2-1 Support an argument that the gravitational force exerted by Earth on objects is directed down.
