Students use PhET Sim to explore gravity and orbits in an inquiry based gravity and orbits virtual lab.
Check out the Sim here::
This gravity and orbits virtual lab asks the question: How do gravity, mass, and distance affect movement in our Earth-Sun-Moon system?
Using the interactive simulation, students experiment by changing variables to create different scenarios. They will then report their observations and draw conclusions. To conclude, students will complete 3 short CER style questions.
