PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this activity, students will apply Newton's Laws of Motion to a video clip from Toy Story 2.

Day 1: For part one, students will record, on their student worksheets, the definitions of each of Newton's Laws of Motion. Then they will use those definitions as they watch a 10 minute video clip. As they watch the video clip they will find one example for each law.

Day 2: For part two, students will choose their best example from part one and complete the analysis portion of the activity.

Concepts covered in this activity: Newton's Laws of Motion, Inertia, Acceleration, Action- Reaction, Speed, Balanced and Unbalanced Forces, Gravity

Included in the file:

Newton Meets Buzz and Woody Student Worksheet- 2 pages pdf

Newton Meets Buzz and Woody Grading Rubric- 1 page pdf

Newton Meets Buzz and Woody Teacher Notes- 2 pages pdf with student samples

Newton Meets Buzz and Woody Writing Template- 1 page pdf

Great activity to reinforce Newton's laws of motion. My 7th graders were very jealous that 8th grade got to do this assignment. The first 4 minutes and 48 seconds of the movie and a few other parts are perfect for this.
