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 www.CircusArts.org/EducationProgram.  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.
