Teaching About Isaac Newton

Whether you're studying famous scientists, the Enlightenment Era, or astronomy with your students, Isaac Newton is a key figure you will probably want to focus on. When students learn about Newton's life and work, they learn about how the solar system works, why gravity is important, and what the basic laws of motion are. Learning about Newton is also an important way for students to gain insight into how a scientist can influence popular perspectives on the world, and what it means to go against mainstream currents of belief. The activities in this lesson teach your students about Newton while appealing to a variety of learning styles and strengths.
