Demonstrate a physics concept in Minecraft
Mini-Lesson (whole class)
Building an elaborate Rube Goldberg is helpful in demonstrating physics concepts like gravity, but the initial rate of a ball falling down a ramp can easily simulate this principle.
- How do you know how far an object will fall?
- What if you want to make it go farther? Try building a simple ramp for a rolling object.
- If you release the ball, how far will it go?
- How can you determine the distance traveled inside Minecraft?
You can edit these to show only what you want the students to know ww/o giving away all the answers.
Put as much information as you can or want to you can add screenshots as well
