Description

Provide engaging instruction and reinforce physics skills with this Force and Motion SCAVENGER HUNT. Keep the activity in your classroom or make it a school wide search! Either way, this scavenger hunt is sure to engage and motivate ALL of your students (grades 6-12).

This Force and Motion Scavenger Hunt is ready to use- just print, fold and hang! I like to post the clues around my classroom and in the hallway, but have also made this a school-wide activity for more of a challenge. My students love to participate in this scavenger hunt as a review before the test! The competition/race proves to be a sure way to engage my students.

***NEWLY ADDED: I have included a digital version of this scavenger hunt that is presented as a link that will take you to a Google Slides document.

What's Included:

⭐ 16 Print & Go Clues

⭐Student Answer Document

⭐Teacher Answer Key

⭐Teacher Instructions/Set-Up

⭐Digital Version (Google Slides)

★★★Skills covered in this activity include: motion graphs, speed/velocity, acceleration, Newton's 1st, 2nd & 3rd law, inertia, force, mass, friction, gravity, weight, balanced forces, unbalanced forces, and net force.★★★

Standards

NGSSMS-PS2-1
Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects. Examples of practical problems could include the impact of collisions between two cars, between a car and stationary objects, and between a meteor and a space vehicle. Assessment is limited to vertical or horizontal interactions in one dimension.
NGSSMS-PS2-5
Conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact. Examples of this phenomenon could include the interactions of magnets, electrically-charged strips of tape, and electrically-charged pith balls. Examples of investigations could include first-hand experiences or simulations. Assessment is limited to electric and magnetic fields, and limited to qualitative evidence for the existence of fields.
NGSSHS-PS2-1
Analyze data to support the claim that Newton’s second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration. Assessment is limited to one-dimensional motion and to macroscopic objects moving at non-relativistic speeds. Examples of data could include tables or graphs of position or velocity as a function of time for objects subject to a net unbalanced force, such as a falling object, an object sliding down a ramp, or a moving object being pulled by a constant force.
NGSSMS-PS2-2
Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object. Emphasis is on balanced (Newton’s First Law) and unbalanced forces in a system, qualitative comparisons of forces, mass and changes in motion (Newton’s Second Law), frame of reference, and specification of units. Assessment is limited to forces and changes in motion in one-dimension in an inertial reference frame, and to change in one variable at a time. Assessment does not include the use of trigonometry.
NGSSMS-PS2-4
Construct and present arguments using evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive and depend on the masses of interacting objects. Examples of evidence for arguments could include data generated from simulations or digital tools; and charts displaying mass, strength of interaction, distance from the Sun, and orbital periods of objects within the solar system. Assessment does not include Newton’s Law of Gravitation or Kepler’s Laws.
