Learners will be able to:

Independently research concept of air resistance and terminal velcoity in order to create notes.

resistance, velocity, and acceleration
Read and analyze an article discussing the concepts of Force of air resistance and terminal velocity

Common Core standards (or GLCEs if not available in Common Core) addressed:
Standard P3-1: Basic forces in motion
P3.2 Net Forces:
Forces have magnitude and direction. The net force on an object is the sum of all the forces acting on the object.
Objects change their speed and/or direction only when a net force is applied. If the net force on an object is zero,
there is no change in motion (Newtons First Law).
P3.2A Identify the magnitude and direction of everyday forces (e.g., wind, tension in ropes, pushes and pulls, weight).
P3.2C Calculate the net force acting on an object.
P3.2d Calculate all the forces on an object on an inclined plane and describe the objects motion based on the
forces using free-body diagrams.
P3.4 Forces and Acceleration: The change of speed and/or direction (acceleration) of an object is proportional to the net force and
inversely proportional to the mass of the object. The acceleration and net force are always in the same direction
HS-PS2-1. Analyze data to support the claim that Newtons second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among
the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.
P3.4B Identify forces acting on objects moving with constant velocity (e.g., cars on a highway).
P3.4C Solve problems involving force, mass, and acceleration in linear motion (Newtons second law).
MP.2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively. (HS-PS2-1),(HS-PS2-2),(HS-PS2-4)
(Note: Write as many as needed. Indicate taxonomy levels and connections to applicable national or state standards. If an objective applies to particular learners
write the name(s) of the learner(s) to whom it applies.)

II. Before you start

Identify prerequisite
knowledge and skills.

Newtons first law and falling bodies. The concept of force, mass, and acceleration. The difference
between mass and weight. The difference between velocity and acceleration. Different equations we
are using to determine Net Force.
Pre-assessment (for learning):

III. The Plan





(the largest
component or
main body of
the lesson)

Describe teacher activities

student activities
for each component of the lesson. Include important higher order thinking questions and/or
KWL on board. Writes ideas on board.
Respond with ideas for KWL
Give goals for the day: Research topic of terminal
velocity, teach that concept to a neighbor, and
analyze a paper on the topic.

Tell students they must investigate the topic of

terminal velocity and create their own notes. Ask
students to answer the questions What is terminal
velocity?, How does Force of air resistance, Net
force, and acceleration affected in this process?,
and Compare the (maximum) air resistance of two
objects and explain why one would be greater than
the other?.

Students research concept of terminal velocity and

create notes on the concept, making sure to answer
the questions given by the teacher.


Students teach and explain concept of terminal

velocity to their table partner.

Students teach their table partner the concept of

terminal velocity and compare notes afterwards.


Give students Coffee lab article and have them

read, analyze, and answer discussion questions.

Students read through Coffee lab article and

answer questions





Show real life application video to terminal


Students take notes to fill in the gaps of their own.

Hand out exit slip.

Students fill out exit slip

Your reflection about the lesson, including evidence(s) of student learning and engagement, as well as ideas for improvement
for next time. (Write this after teaching the lesson, if you had a chance to teach it. If you did not teach this lesson, focus on the
process of preparing the lesson.)
