# BUNDLE Physics Learning Stations: Exploring Physics- Matter in Motion

Product Description
In Exploring Physics- Matter in Motion, students rotate through 8 learning stations in which they explore: defining and calculating speed, how forces affect an object's motion, define force, net force, balanced and unbalanced forces, friction- a force that opposes motion, types of friction, friction as helpful, harmful and reducing friction, gravity- a force of attraction, mass and weight, comparing gravity on the moon to gravity on Earth, what if gravity disappeared

Students work in groups of 3 or 4 and have about 40 minutes per station. Each student records his/her own observations and answers in his/her own lab packet.

Station work includes: topic slides, video clips, virtual labs, station cards, reference books, science article analysis, math practice, graphing practice, Matter and Motion flip book,

The attached activity file includes detailed instructions for putting together the activity. A list of materials and links to video clips and virtual lab sites are included in the teacher notes. Basic construction of the flip book is needed. Computers with internet access are required for all of the stations.

Station 1: Measuring Motion- topic slides, virtual lab calculating speed, Measuring Motion Practice Problems worksheet
Station 2: What is a Force?- topic slides, video clip, station card, Forces Practice Problems worksheet
Station 3: Friction- A Force That Opposes Motion- topic slides, video clip, reference books, Friction Practice Problems worksheet
Station 4: A Crash Course in Friction- virtual lab exploring the result of friction on different types of road surfaces at a variety of speeds, Take a Look at Friction worksheet
Station 5: Gravity- A Force of Attraction- topic slides, weightlessness video clip, virtual lab Space University comparing sports played on the Earth and Moon
Station 6: What if Gravity Disappeared?- video clip on spacewalk, exploring if gravity disappeared and performing common everyday activities, create a cartoon
Station 7: Leap From Space- topic slides, article analysis, Going Up worksheet
Station 8: Matter in Motion- online prior knowledge quiz, create a foldable, Matter and Motion flip book, video clips
