Investigation of Pitch & Rate of Vibration part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is an activity demonstrating how pitch varies using water bottles, and allows students to investigate pitch further with rulers, straws, and water bottles.

Subject: Physics:Oscillations & Waves
Resource Type: Activities: Activities:Lab Activity, Classroom Activity

Investigating Motion: What Causes Objects to Move? part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a structured inquiry into why objects move and why some objects move farther than others. Students will make predictions on how far an object will move when blown on, blow on the objects, measure the distances they moved and record their findings.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics
Resource Type: Activities: Activities:Classroom Activity

Investigating Light: A Form of Energy You Can See part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This is a short unit (including hands on activities) to expand our study of how light travels and how it behaves when it hits an object.

Subject: Physics:Optics
Resource Type: Activities: Activities:Classroom Activity

Projectile Motion and Gravity part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a mini lab where students see the effects of gravity on objects falling from a resting state and objects projected out from the same level.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics
Resource Type: Activities: Activities:Lab Activity

Rocket Lab part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is lab based competition. The students engineer a 2-litter rocket to have the maximum hang time. After the initial launch, the students are given an opportunity to re-engineer to produce a better time. The activity finishes with a lab write-up.
