Gravity and Mass Middle School Science Unit - Making an Argument from Evidence NGSS MS-PS2-4

Gravity and Mass in the Solar System

Need a little help covering gravity and mass in your middle school science class?


This standards-aligned complete unit will help you cover standard NGSS MS-PS2-4 and Utah SEEd 7.1.5, and your students will enjoy the engaging activities! Gravity and Mass Unit for Middle School: Students will learn that gravity is a force that attracts and it is influenced by mass and distance of interacting objects. Students will construct arguments based on evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive and depend on the masses of interacting objects in the MS NGSS and Utah SEEd 7th Grade resource.


Gravity and Mass: Making an Argument From Evidence NGSS MS-PS2-4

Construct and present arguments using evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive and depend on the masses of interacting objects.

This resource aligns with NGSS Middle School Standards

MS-PS2-4.And also Utah SEEd

Standard 7.1.5 

Engaging in argument from evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions within a system are attractive and dependent upon the masses of interacting objects.



This is a large unit that can stretch over the course of 11 days if you use the suggested schedule that I've included.



The unit begins with a slide show on gravity and includes a strategic note-taking guide.



The unit goes on to have graphing activities, informational text articles, QR code research, and an activity for making arguments from evidence gathered.
