Science B22: Moon Drop


Award-winning video and lesson investigations for young children on the topic of mass, weight and gravity

Product Description

Video and lesson investigations on the topic of mass, weight and gravity. Key concepts include:

  • Air resistance slows things down, but there is no air on the Moon.
  • The force of gravity pulls all objects equally, regardless of their mass.
  • Gravity is less on the Moon so things fall more slowly.
  • On the Moon objects retain their mass but have less weight.
  • The Moon has its own gravitational force, but the size of this is much smaller because the Moon is a smaller mass than the earth.
  • The Moon’s gravitational pull is around one-sixth of that of Earth’s.
  • Because the moon has no air at all there is no air resistance on falling objects. This is why the feather falls at the same rate as the hammer.
  • The Moon has no atmosphere because its gravitational pull is so weak.
