Lesson Worksheet: Gravity Science • 4th Grade
In this worksheet, we will practice defining the force of gravity and describing its effects on objects.
Objects with greater mass have a stronger pull. Which of the objects given has the strongest gravitational pull?
- AA soccer ball
- BA bowling ball
- CA table tennis ball
- DA tennis ball
Pick the correct word to fill in the blank: Earth’s gravity pulls objects .
What force does the arrow show?
What is the name of the force that helps the child travel down a slide?
Gravity is a noncontact force which pulls all objects toward each other.
Choose a word from the following to fill in the blank: The amount of gravity an object has depends on its .
Objects with more mass have a stronger gravitational pull than objects with less mass.
Fill in the blank: The force of gravity is on the Moon than on Earth because the Moon has less mass than Earth.
The force of gravity on the Moon is smaller than on Earth.
Fill in the blanks: An astronaut can jump higher on than on .
- AEarth, the Moon
- Bthe Moon, Earth
Fill in the blanks: This is because there is a force the astronaut to the ground.
- Aweaker, pushing
- Bweaker, pulling
- Cstronger, pushing
- Dstronger, pulling
Weight is the force that gravity exerts on an object. What unit is weight measured in?
This leaf is falling through the air. Air resistance pushes upward on the leaf.
Fill in the blank: The leaf falls because air resistance is not the only force acting on the leaf. The force of on the leaf.
- Agravity pushes up
- Bgravity pulls down
This jar is resting on a table. The object has a weight force.
Fill in the blank: The jar does not fall through the table because the surface of the table the object with an equal force.
- Apushes up on
- Bpushes down on
