5 Gravity and Orbits
Looking through this Science Object I was able to learn about gravity and orbits. This science object was made by NASA and NSTA. This enabled me to understand how gravitational forces are associated with all objects which have mass. I learned how every object exerts some type of gravitational force off of every other object. All objects exert gravitational force which pulls away from each other. The flow of rivers is determined by the gravitational pull they receive. This Science Object was insightful in teaching about gravitational force and orbits. I was able to learn some basic information that will help me apply it into the classroom.
