This Universal Gravitation lesson package describes Gravity in Space, The Law of Universal Gravitation, The Power of Gravity, How Gravity Affects the Tides, Objects in Circular Orbit and How Our Bodies Respond to Microgravity. There are many opportunities for students to test their knowledge through “Check Your Understanding” slides with the teacher version containing the answers (these are generally problem-based questions like they would see on a test or quiz). There are 3 videos embedded in the PowerPoint. Simply start the slideshow and click the image and it will automatically open in your browser. The lesson contains diagrams, examples and explanations. It includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the PowerPoint) and a student lesson handout as a word document which follows the PowerPoint.

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
