Hair-Raising Ride

Hair-Raising Ride”, an article written by Sara Goudarzi for scienceworld.scholastic.com, is a great resource for anyone looking to reinforce a lesson that is about physics.  This article is very short, but very impactful because it talks about very important terms such as; “gravitational potential energy”, “gravity”, and “kinetic energy”.  The article also relates these ideas to a rollercoaster which should excite the students because they should have background knowledge about rollercoasters.  This article has the power to introduce / reinforce these key ideas of physics, and also shows how the key concepts have real world applications.  This is a great resource if you are looking to relate physics beyond the classroom.
