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
This set includes:
Force and Motion Presentation
Force and Motion Assessments, Labs, and Activities
Force and Motion Vocabulary Pack
Force and Motion Interactive Notebook
What is included?
Presentation: (68 slides long!) PDF format*
♦ slides to help guide your lessons on force and motion
♦ review slides to go over all of the concepts
♦ answers for review questions immediately follow each question for class discussion
*PDFs view the same as a PPT if you go to "view" then "full screen." The slides even advance with a remote if needed!
Labs, Assessments, and Activities:
♦ 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
♦ instructions with pictures on how to use an interactive notebook, and how to use this pack if you don't normally use an interactive notebook
♦ pictures of each completed entry
♦ four main entries: force, friction, motion, laws of motion
*each includes a review with or without blanks, a practice activity, a foldable booklet/activity, and an application "Show What You Know" questions for each main entry
♦ includes regular and composition sized "Show What You Know" to help accommodate any size notebook
force, motion, speed, direction, position, magnet, gravity, mass, weight, friction, air resistance, water resistance, drag, lubrication, surface area, balanced forces, unbalanced, forces, contact force, non-contact force, velocity, acceleration, kinetic energy, potential energy, inertia, Newton's 1st Law of Motion, Newton's 2nd Law of Motion, and Newton's 3rd Law of Motion
♦ colorful visual vocabulary cards for a word wall/science vocabulary wall
♦ posters of each of Newton's Laws of Motion
♦ vocabulary cards for concentration/matching games, group activities, or student study
♦ a cut out/glue pocket to hold vocabulary cards in interactive notebook if needed
**Low-ink version of wall vocabulary now included! Be sure to re-download if needed!
Please see individual listings, previews, and descriptions for more details.
**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.
