Circus,  a beautiful art form of movement and skill, is also a great lesson in physics. This series of one-hour activities, provided by The Circus Arts Conservatory,  are designed to provide interactive, hands-on experiences to reinforce basic concepts in physical science for the elementary student. Covered in the lessons are: (grades K-1) gravity, force, motion and (grade 2) friction, weight (introduction to mass), and acceleration. An exploration of Newton’s Second Law of Motion. using a circus act with data collection and graphing is included.

For lesson review and further inquiry,  a website is available for use in the classroom or on the students home computer, 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.
