Circus, a beautiful art form of movement and skill, is also a great lesson in physics. This series of one-hour activities, presented by The Circus Arts Conservatory’s  Education Program, are designed to provide interactive, hands-on experiences to reinforce basic concepts in physical science for the  middle school student. Using the theme of circus acts and their corresponding physics, the lessons are real-world based. The students work in collaborative groups and develop a 3-ring science presentation that strengthens their understanding the laws of motion.

For lesson review and further inquiry,  a website is available for use in the classroom or on the students home computer at  On the site, students will be able to look at circus acts and watch video on each of the scientific concepts discussed in each classroom lesson. There will also be a teacher link with additional lesson plans. A workbook will be provided for each student as well as a teachers edition with Standards listed for each lesson.
