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, force can change the speed and direction of an object.

There are 3 main activities:
Vocabulary:
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 as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.

Reading:
Next, have students read the informational articles 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.

Activities:
Have students complete the student activities like graphic organizers, mystery flaps, cloze passage, and Force & Motion Flip-Up Booklet. Students can build the flip-up book 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. Flip-up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12x18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.
