I am looking for some lessons on gravity. I would like there to be a focus on air resistance and inertia as well as mass! Thank you!

Hello Jessica,

I'm not sure what grade you are teaching, but I found some ideas that you could hopefully adjust to fit your class!

The first includes some trade books you could use (more for elementary students):

The second and third include some activities to create different models using gravity to move them along. See if these may be of help:

Let me know what you think! If you could also narrow down your grade level, we can find more specific resources for you!
