This web page provides a collection of high school physical science lesson plans designed using the Learning Cycle pedagogical model. In this model, students first engage in hands-on activities before being introduced to new terms or textbook materials. The cycle culminates in the application of new knowledge to a unique situation (usually a lab activity). Most of the experiments use very simple equipment. Each activity includes a series of questions with information and tips for the instructor. Topics range from mass and density through Newton's laws and electricity, to heat and light.
