This Force and Motion Unit includes reading passages, comprehension & connections activities, vocabulary posters, a unit test, and a flipbook. Plus there are two character studies where students will meet Isaac Newton and Elijah McCoy!
A force is a push or a pull that can make an object move. You use pushing and pulling motions all the time! You are using force when you write your name, open a door, tie your shoes, and even take a sip of your milk. Sometimes, a force can change the speed and direction of an object. In this unit, students will learn all about different forces through the use of kid-friendly reading passages and hands-on activities.
Students will learn about force and motion with reading passages about:
✔Force on an object
✔Speed & Acceleration
✔Laws of Motion
Plus there are character studies where students will meet two influential scientists and inventors:
This unit includes many interactive activities and learning opportunities for students including:
✔Vocabulary Flip Flaps
✔Force Comprehension Organizers (4)
✔Force Mystery Flaps
✔Unit Test with Answer Key
✔Unit Test (Easel Assessment)
✔6-page Force and Motion Flip Book
✔Spotlight on Vocabulary
✔Works well with Core Knowledge (CK)
✔Geared for Upper Elementary Grades 2-5
There are three main activities:
Introduce the vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use them as a center activity. These posters make an attractive bulletin board in a snap!
Have students read the passages about force, motion, gravity, mass, speed and acceleration, friction, magnetism, and electromagnetism. Have students complete the comprehension and connection questions and organizers.
There are two character studies for students to read about and meet Sir Isaac Newton and Elijah McCoy. There are also biography organizers to do additional research on these two scientists. You could have students work with a partner or in small groups or even as a center/station activity.
Have students complete the student activities like graphic organizers, mystery flaps, cloze passage, and flipbook. Students can build the flipbook page by page. I usually have them do one page at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the flip-up. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flipbooks can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12x18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.
