Force and Motion is an exciting topic and everything you need to teach a science unit on force, motion, and energy can be found here! This 2-week Force and Motion Unit includes:
+ 5 STEM-Based Science Experiments: Experiments allow students to investigate how a force creates motion, the amount of force required to move an object, the effects of weight and mass on the speed and motion of an object, what creates friction and how friction affects the movement of an object, what type of energy is created by friction, and the difference between potential and kinetic energy. Each experiment comes with an optional Star Wars connection which provides ideas for connecting the concept being taught to the Star Wars films, a movie clip to go with the experiment, and ways to enhance the experiment that will get students excited. Student data sheets are included for each experiment so that students can record their predictions, observations, and conclusions. Each student data sheet incorporates the scientific method.
+ 4 Worksheets
+ 1 Force & Motion Quiz
+ 1 Center Activity: Force and motion matching game. Star Wars theme and a non-Star Wars theme set included.
+ 1 Set of Word Wall Cards: A Star Wars theme and a non-Star Wars theme set have been included.
+ 1 Force & Motion Final Test
+ 1 Time Line of Suggested Activities: Provides a timeline for using the activities and experiments included within this set and provides links to websites featuring videos of concepts being taught.
+ Answer keys included throughout
+ PDF & Digital Activities: 10 worksheets, quiz, and test (18 digital pages total) are also available in digital format and can be shared with students using your Google Drive.
