This could be part of a theme or a stand-alone activity. I used a video link from youtube for a 'flipped lesson' that shares information about Gravity: Crash Course Kids. Also Shared video links about the HOPE Probe from the UAE - to remind students what it is and how it stays in orbit. Students will be able to identify gravity and distinguish between gravity and opposing gravity. They will share their knowledge about what happens when you do a gravity drop test.
