Great Gravity Video

As I transitioned from Motions, Forces, and Energy to Astronomy...
I decided to stick with the "Amusement Park" theme.

they were extremely interested in finding out more about rides and 
the connection between gravity/inertia and rides.

The high interest and prior knowledge provided a perfect opportunity to tie in astronomy concepts....

I planned to only show a few clips of the video,
but ended up showing the whole 30-minute video (stopping every now and then to discuss).

Absolutely worth the $24.99! :)
{Not to mention, it makes me want to go to Disney to ride Tower of Terror ASAP!}
