Physical Science

Student-favorite physics related lesson plans?

Hello all! I am beginning my full time student teaching semester in a month and will be teaching four freshmen classes of physics (in physical science) as well as a senior class of physics. Do you have any lessons or activities you've done that went over really well with your students? I would love to hear.

This is an activity that I remember from my high school physics class. I have not tried to recreate this activity but it was very enjoyable when I performed it myself. We had to create a vessel to drop an egg from our school bleachers. If the egg broke we did not properly protect it from impact. Here is an online resource I found from Virginia Tech https://www.phys.vt.edu/outreach/projects-and-demos/egg-drop.html
