Students will make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
Fun labs and engaging activities will help you teach these concepts.
This resource addresses the NGSS Disciplinary Core Idea of Motions and Stability: Forces and Interactions.
This resource includes lessons that address the standard:
NGSS 3-PS2-2 Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
Also addresses Utah SEEd
3.3.2 Analyze data from observations and measurements of an object’s moon to identify patterns that can be used to predict future moon. Examples of moon with a predictable pattern could include a child swinging in a swing, a ball rolling back and forth in a bowl, and two children on a see-saw.
This resource includes hands-on activities, a nonfiction article, response pages and interactive notebook flaps. Students will love these exciting activities that are really engaging. Students will use STEM thinking and design principles in these engaging activities. Teachers will love the low prep and lessons with easy to find house hold materials.
