gravity worksheets for kids

Free, Printable Reading Worksheets, Lessons and Activities for Classroom use and Home Schooling.

If you're struggling to explain how gravity works, or what gravity is to your little one, there are some great printables that can help you further your explaination and give them some fun activities to help them remember.
Drop the penny and the pen and ask your kids: “What happened?” Results may vary, but you should tell your group that all things, when dropped near the surface of earth, accelerate at the same rate due to earth’s gravity.
Give each pair of kids a Falling for Gravity activity sheet, a couple of marbles, a ruler, and a binder or books to create an inclined plane and point them toward the student web page.
When objects travel down an inclined plane, gravity is pulling them downward, but the plane is exerting a force on the object, which makes it fall along the plane rather than straight down.
Hold up a penny and a pen and ask your kids: “Do you think these two things when dropped would hit the ground at the same time?” Record student responses on a blackboard or big sheet of paper.

Fact #3: Gravity is not equal, and the amount dwells on a variety of factors such as the size of object, the place as gravity differs from planet to planet and also different places on earth as well and finally distance.
It is quite similar to magnetic force and everything with mass ranging from as little as a grain of sand to as large as an elephant has gravity and the mystery remains the cause.
Fact #1: Gravity is an invisible pulling force between two matters or objects.
As I understand it, gravity is one of the four forces of nature and is defined as the force of attraction between two objects that have mass.
Fact #4: Gravity keeps the earth and other planets in orbit close to the sun.
Fact #5: Gravity never pushes, it is a pulling force.
The little simple things that matter often rotate around gravity as it is responsible for keeping the food we serve, on our plates and also keeping the water or drinks in their glasses.
Gravity still remains a mystery to the human race that plays an important role in our day to day activities.
Fact #2: Gravity keeps you grounded and without it, you would be floating in air drifting upwards.
There are numerous activities we can try out to test the force of gravity.
Gravity is responsible for guiding the growth of the various plants and vegetation meaning without it; we would have nothing to eat as they would never grow if not floating around.

Print the Understanding Gravity reading comprehension passage and questions (see below).
You would also weight a lot less because the lack of gravity would make your body weight change.
The amount you weigh is based on the force of gravity as it pulls you down towards the earth.
The moon has less amounts of gravity then the earth does so if you were to go on the moon you would bounce and float rather than walk.
Gravity is a force of nature that works between two bodies of matter in the universe to try and pull them together.
This lesson focuses on what gravity is, Isaac Newton, the laws of gravity, force, motion, and inertia.
By completing this lesson, students will learn about recycling, and in the process demonstrate their reading comprehension skills, including reading strategies, inference, literal meaning, and critical analysis.
Gravity pulls you down to the earth and allows you to walk around instead of floating.
A science reading lesson on gravity.
When your weight or height increase or decrease your body mass changes shape.
Weight change occurs because the matter would be much denser then it is on the earth.
A science lesson on understanding gravity.
Weight deals primarily with gravity.
Older students should read the passage silently, then answer the questions.  Teachers may also use the text as part of a classroom lesson plan.
While you are on earth gravity will stop you from floating away.

Astronauts can get a sense of weightlessness before they travel into orbit.  NASA uses a large plane equipped with padded inside walls to travel high into the atmosphere where it then flies upward at a 45 degree angle and then down at a 45 degree angle to create 25-30 second periods of weightlessness.  Each flight performs about 40-60 of these maneuvers.  These flights take place over the Gulf of Mexico.
  Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go up into space? What it would be like to see the Solar System without the need for a telescope? What do you think it would be like? Some have been able to answer these questions and these people are called astronauts.
That’s right – food! If you went up into space, what is on the menu might disappoint you – there’s no fast food delivery into outer space so there would be no freshly cooked pizzas or burgers! So instead, every few months, a spacecraft will deliver food to the hungry astronauts loaded with ready made meals, frozen vegetables and other foods that you’re likely to find in the refrigerator at home along with frozen desserts and dairy products.
  While this is true, it is not the right answer to why astronauts are lighter in space than on the Earth.
  Image: NASA   Image: NASA   Space is also very very cold, so an astronaut’s spacesuit keeps them warm, while protecting them from deadly radiation.

Beginning with simple instruments, students can use rulers to measure the length, height, and depth of objects and materials; thermometers to measure temperature; watches to measure time; beam balances and spring scales to measure weight and force; magnifiers to observe objects and organisms; and microscopes to observe the finer details of plants, animals, rocks, and other materials.
Hold up a hammer and a feather and ask students to predict what would happen if you dropped them simultaneously from the same height: Would they hit the ground at the same time or at different times? Do not drop the objects at this point.
Students investigate the force of gravity and how all objects, regardless of their mass, fall to the ground at the same rate.
Ask students to predict what would happen if you dropped a whole apple and half an apple at the same time from the same height: Would they hit the ground at the same time, or would one hit before the other? Why? Have the students record their predictions and explain their thinking.
