Force and motion can be a difficult concept for students. However, learning more about how forces all around us affect how we and other objects move can be a lot of fun!
force, friction, gravity, balanced forces, unbalanced forces, contact forces, non-contact forces, mass vs. weight, drag (air resistance, water resistance), lubrication, surface area and how it affects friction, motion, direction, position, speed, velocity, acceleration, potential energy, kinetic energy, inertia, Newton's Laws of Motion
Be sure to check out the preview!
Also included in the Force and Motion Complete Set
This pack has hands-on activities, labs, and assessments for you to gauge your students' understanding of the concepts included with force and motion.
Included with this pack:
♦ an assessment on forces and related concepts/vocabulary that can be used as a daily grade/quiz
♦ an assessment on motion and related concepts/vocabulary that can be used as a daily grade/quiz
♦ ideas for demonstrations to do in your classroom either as a model or for your students to participate in
♦ labs/hands-on activities on friction, surface area, Newton's 2nd law, and Newton's 3rd law that can be used as assessments
♦ a scavenger hunt on forces and motion
♦ a blank lab sheet for any other labs/changes you want to make for labs
♦ lab and demonstration notes for you! Pictures for some labs that may be hard to "picture" the set up!
♦ links to videos, online demonstrations, and games to go with the unit
♦ a study guide to go with the unit test (key included)
♦ a unit test with key
Special Materials Needed:
Friction Lab requires: 2 paperback books per group/person.
Newton's 3rd Law Lab: rulers (or paper towel rolls), golf balls (or bouncy balls) * Marbles are a possibility, but proved to be more difficult to use!
Newton's 2nd Law Demonstrations - Various objects for students to demonstrate this law, rubric for grading is included!
Surface Area Lab: Garbage bags, string, metal washers, and tape.
