The best way to differentiate instruction in Science is by using a choice board! This Force & Motion/ Simple Machines Differentiated Choice Board is a fun way to get students to be hands-on with their learning through technology, writing, and art! This can be used as an assessment, an investigation tool, or as homework.
This product aligns perfectly with the Georgia 4th Grade standard:
S4P3. Students will demonstrate the relationship between the application of a force and the
resulting change in position and motion on an object.
a. Identify simple machines and explain their uses (lever, pulley, wedge, inclined plane,
screw, wheel and axle).
b. Using different size objects, observe how force affects speed and motion.
c. Explain what happens to the speed or direction of an object when a greater force than
the initial one is applied.
d. Demonstrate the effect of gravitational force on the motion of an object.
