Daily Do: How do asteroids cross Earth's path?

In the How do asteroids cross Earth's path? task, students experience the Chelyabinsk meteor phenomenon and engage in modeling and use the thinking tools of cause and effect to try to explain how an asteroid from the asteroid belt becomes a meteor on Earth.

Why do asteroids cross Earth's path?

Daily Do: Why don't the dishes move?

In the Why don't the dishes move? task, students engage in science and engineering ideas and use the thinking tool of cause and effect (crosscutting concepts) to make sense of science ideas about forces. Students use these ideas about forces to explain how the remove-the-tablecloth-from-under-the-dishes and similar magic tricks work.

Daily Do: How do we protect fragile cargo?

In this task, How can we protect fragile cargo?, students engage in science and engineering practices and use the thinking tools of patterns and scale, proportion and quantity (crosscutting concepts) to make sense of Newton's second law of motion and more specifically the idea of impulse to explain how fragile cargo (like us humans) can survive landing from heights.
