Product Description
FORCE AND MOTION - 3rd GRADE - Complete Unit NO PREP ***NGSS ALIGNED ***
***************************************************************************************************
This is a in-depth approach to learning that uses a combination of HANDS-ON discoveries, high-order READING comprehensions, STEM-focused enginnering tasks, collaborative problem solving. This is a COMPLETE unit of learning linked to the THIRD grade COLLABORATIVE of NGSS on Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
***************************************************************************************************
NGSS Objectives:
***3-PS2-1.
Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.
***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.
***3-PS2-3.
Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.
***3-PS2-4.
Define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.*
***3-5-ETS1-3. Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.

***************************************************************************************************
Lesson Topics:

Lesson 1: What is a force?
Lesson 2: What’s the difference between a balanced and unbalanced force?
Lesson 3: Do heavier things need more force to move?
Lesson 4: What slows down movement?{Friction}
Lesson 5: Why do we stay on the ground?{Gravity}
Lesson 6: How does air affect motion? (Air Resistance}
***STEM Challenge - Time for Take-off!***
Lesson 7: What types of objects are magnetic?
Lesson 8: Can magnetic forces pass through any object?
Lesson 9: Are two magnets stronger than one?
Lesson 10: How are Electricity and Magnets linked?
***End of Unit Project - Rube Goldberg Simple Machines***

***************************************************************************************************
What's included?

-75 + page interactive science journal to accompany the entire unit. Included in the journals are comprehension tasks, puzzles, experiments, reflection activities, research activities, writing tasks and much more.

- Detailed Comprehension tasks with questions to assess understanding.

- Hands-on activities, experiments, investigations to deepen student understanding and increase engagement.

- ***PBL end of unit project included where students use their knowledge of forces to build their very own Rube Goldberg Machine!!

***************************************************************************************************
When you buy this product your entire unit is planned and ready to go. You can either print off the entire journal for your students or pick and choose lessons to suit your own curriculum. Either way, it is an outstanding product to teach Forces and Interactions in a hands-on approach that the student will love.
