Walking on Water--How Do Water Striders Do It? part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity provides students with a first look at water tension and its role in the life of a water strider.

Subject: Chemistry:General Chemistry:Properties of Matter, , PhysicsFluid MechanicsSurface Tension
Resource Type: Activities: Activities:Classroom Activity:Short Activity:Demonstration

Force and Motion: Gravity and Wind Resistance part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
The egg-drop activity is designed to help students develop a deeper understanding of the force created by wind resistance and how it interacts with the force due to Gravity. Students will note how surface area affects the resistance of a falling object as Gravity works on it. Students will record and share observations and questions regarding the experiment.

What's Mu? part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a field investigation where students design an experiment to determine the coefficient of friction for two contacting surfaces.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics:Motion in Two Dimensions
Resource Type: Activities: Activities:Field Activity

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.

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

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

Parachutes and Air Resistance part of MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is a hands-on lesson that shows how air resistance affects how things move and how air is all around objects.
