PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Working in the lab and being engaged in science experiments is the most exciting part of science. The following Force and Motion Demo, Lab and Science Stations give your students the opportunity to investigate, explore and learn the science topic being studied.

***PLEASE NOTE***This product is part of my PHYSICAL SCIENCE DEMOS, LABS & SCIENCE STATIONS BUNDLE

***************************************************************************

Topics Included for Force and Motion:

• Describing Motion
• Acceleration
• Friction
• Newton’s Laws of Motion
• Gravity

Force and Motion Demo, Lab & Science Stations will showcase each student’s ability to:

• Explain the difference between speed and velocity
• Interpret motion graphs
• Identify how acceleration, time and velocity are all related
• Explain how positive and negative acceleration affect motion
• Calculate the acceleration of an object
• Explain how force and motion are related
• Describe inertia
• Define and apply Newton’s Laws of Motion
• Describe three different types of friction
• Understand the effects of air resistance on falling objects
• Describe gravitational force and centripetal force
• Explain momentum
• Illustrate and identify factors of the path of a projectile

What is provided with this product – SEE PRODUCT PREVIEW FOR SAMPLE PAGES

1. SCIENCE STATION SIGNAGE for all 7 stations is provided in color and in black and white (see preview) and all student answer sheets have icons that correspond with each station for ease of use.

2. DEMONSTRATION (teacher-led) which allows teachers to invite scientific discussions and can help uncover misconceptions and, most importantly, lead to heightened curiosity and interest of the topic being studied.

3. GUIDED INQUIRY LAB which is a traditional lab that allows students to perform an investigation in order to solve a problem. Students will hypothesize, collect and analyze data and communicate their results.

4. TEACHER GUIDES to DEMOS & SCIENCE STATIONS help get you started and give you background information to make your science lessons awesome!

5. 7 SCIENCE STATIONS which are designated locations in the classroom with activities that challenge students to extend their knowledge and elaborate on their science skills by working independently of the teacher in small groups or pairs. Stations included are:
INFORMATION STATION
Group members will read an interesting and relevant science passage then complete a task to help increase science literacy and deepen their understanding of the science concept.

OBSERVATION STATION
Group members will have images, illustrations or actual samples at this station that show applications or processes of the science topic. Using what they’ve learned, they will need to apply their observation skills to complete the questions attached to each.

CALCULATION STATION
Group members use their math skills to complete the station challenge. Skills may include graphing, analyzing data, using models, measurement, and calculating formulas or word problems.

INVESTIGATION STATION
Group members will work with one another to explore the concept through hands-on activities so they may practice specific inquiry process skills as they learn.

COMMUNICATION STATION
There are three different options for this station: interviews, video, group essay. Depending on the option you choose, group members will communicate what they know by answering questions in creative ways.

CREATION STATION
Group members will work together to solve a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) challenge by creating models or designs that demonstrate their understanding of the science topic being taught.

IMAGINATION STATION
This station makes science concepts relevant for students by asking them to imagine scenarios that will bring about discussion and critical thinking.

6. INQUIRY PROCESS SKILLS CHECKLIST is provided with each set to show teachers and administrators the inquiry skills used by students in each activity. These skills include, but are not limited to, communicating, creating models, inferring, classifying, identifying variables, measuring, observing, predicting, gathering and organizing data, comparing and contrasting, interpreting data and manipulating materials.

Cliff Note Version: Product is for ONE TEACHER – Please do not distribute illegally and PLEASE keep it off the internet! Thanks for your honesty.
