This complete gravity unit focuses ONLY ON GRAVITY and includes 10 high-quality lessons to teach and assess gravity at the middle school level! The included gravity activities are both engaging and rigorous.

This GRAVITY LESSON BUNDLE contains:

✅ Gravity Notes PresentationStudents take notes on a Cloze worksheet as they view the gravity presentation. The presentation covers the factors that affect gravity, weight, mass vs. weight, gravity on Earth, and gravity in space. (Includes both PowerPoint and Google Slides versions.)

✅ Mass and Weight Comparison ActivityAfter this quick and fun worksheet, students no longer confuse mass and weight – a common student misconception. (Includes both print and Google Slides versions.)

✅ Weight on Other Planets Activity: Students calculate their weight and the weight of several objects on different planets in our solar system. (Includes both print and Google Slides versions.)

✅ The Role of Gravity in the Universe Readings and Worksheets (4): Four separate lessons teach students about the different roles of gravity in the universe, including (1) the birth of the universe, (2) the birth of our solar system, (3) the role of gravity and inertia in planetary orbits, and (4) gravity and black holes. Each lesson includes both an informational article and a related worksheet with text-dependent questions. (Includes both print and Google Slides versions.)

✅ Graphing Gravity Activity: Bring the rigor! Students graph the factors that affect gravity. First, they’ll graph and analyze provided data about how mass affects gravity. Then, they’ll graph and analyze provided data about how distance affects gravity. (Includes both print and Google Slides versions.)

✅ Gravity Review WorksheetThis content-dense worksheet focuses on the relationship between distance, mass, and gravitational force. There are many diagrams and graphs to analyze that will challenge your students to think critically. (Print version only)

✅ Gravity Assessment: This 14-question assessment reflects the rigor of NGSS with questions that require diagram analysis and higher-level thinking. It focuses especially on how gravity is affected by mass and distance. (Print version only)

✅ Fun Extra Activity or Sub Plan: Students read the engaging article “Top 10 Ways Life Would Be Different Without Gravity” and then answer text-dependent questions. (Includes both print and Google Slides versions.)
