This file is a great hands-on tool to help get students motivated about Forces & Motions, and Simple Machines. In this file you will find a student lab booklet that contains 5 different experiments that incorporate gravity, magnetism, friction, and simple machines. We have a Forces & Motion Commotion event where students rotate to different classrooms to complete 5 hands on experiments. In this file you will find the directions for the experiments and their lab booklet. For the Simple Machine experiment we create a room that has different simple machines for the students to play with. Also see my files for a lab booklet cover, student rubric, experiment station signs, etc.
