PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Introduce balanced and unbalanced forces with students, mobiles, paper clips and cards, and a penny on a loop on a jar. These activities are GREAT for a science open house or a family science night.

View a video to see a quick overview of the lessons – it's like I'm sitting next to you explaining your options.

There's also simple videos you can use to preview or review activities. Choose from two student texts that are saved with three reading levels in English and two in Spanish. The texts have also been recorded for students who benefit from listening to the information.

A variety of assessments including performance assessments are included with answer keys or samples of our completed assessments.

The activities use materials* that you can easily collect locally. This lesson supports NGSS 3-PS2-1♦.

It’s part of a series about physics, including: this unit about forces, pushes and pulls, air and water pressure, magnetism, and static electricity.
