Circus,  a beautiful art form of movement and skill, is also a great lesson in physics. This series of 45-minute activities, provided by The Circus Arts Conservatory teaching artists,  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 (two lessons)
gravity, force, motion

Grade 2 (three lessons)
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 with each grade level.

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

  • All supplies and workbooks will be provided by The CAC.
  • Lesson plan is provided.
  • Virtual PD upon requested.
