Weightlessness discussion activity

This is a short activity getting pupils to discuss weightlessness and think about how to apply the physics they have learned in physics to understand what is going on. It includes a multiple choice trick question I found online that is very good to check understanding! Also includes: Video on weightlessness and concept cartoon, explanation with a man in lift (don't need to use the text, can replace it with dialogue), and a G-force video.
