Force, Balance Forces, Unbalance Forces, Force Diagrams, Net Force, Newton’s First Law, Newton’s Second Law, Newton’s Third Law, Law of Inertia, Action-Reaction, Momentum, Gravity
Force Instructional Activities:
1.Force Diagrams-Draw and Label Boxes With Forces Vectors to Show Balance and Unbalance Forces
2.Net Forces and Force Diagrams-Draw and Label Force Diagrams; Calculate Net Forces
3.Newton’s Three Laws-Draw pictures representing Newton’s Three Laws
4.Momentum- Draw Pictures Representing Momentum and Calculate Momentum
5.Gravity- Draw a Picture Representing a Ball Falling and Calculating the Acceleration
These activities are student-center. I use this as a study guide before my Force Unit Test. The students complete the project using examples and problems found in their notebook. Or they come up with their own answers using the examples and problems found in their notebook as a guide. I tell my students this project is independent of the teacher. They can use partners and their peers but cannot ask me for any answers.
This Project is paired with my Force and Newton's Three Laws of Motion Unit. The questions align well with the information from the Force Unit.
North Carolina Essential Standard
PSc.1.2.1 Explain how gravitational force affects the weight of an object and the velocity of an object in freefall.
PSc.1.2.3 Explain forces using Newton’s three laws of motion.
