Learning Objective

Students will learn about force and energy and Newton's three laws of motion. Students think critically about combined forces in relationship to motion. Students will also learn about colliding objects.

Description


Force and Motion Unit: Students will love learning about force and motion through these great labs, like making a balloon car that is air powered! Students will love learning that a depends on the mass of the object and the combined forces. Students will learn about colliding objects and the impact of a collision through investigation. This is a complete unit for middle school NGSS, Force, and Motion.

This resource includes:

  • an article on Newton
  • slide show on fair tests
  • follow-up pages to review Newton’s three laws of motion
  • informational text passage Energy and Force
  • comprehension questions
  • interactive notebook flaps
  • follow-up pages
  • 4 labs on Force and Motion
  • 5 E lesson plans
  • a quiz
  • answer keys
  • word wall words


The labs are easy to use with simple inexpensive materials. This HUGE unit has over 90 pages and slides.

NGSS MS-PS2-1. Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects.* [Clarification Statement: Examples of practical problems could include the impact of collisions between two cars, between a car and stationary objects, and between a meteor and a space vehicle.

NGSS MS-PS2-2. Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object. 

It is also aligned with Utah SEEd for 7th grade.

Utah SEEd 7.1.1 and 7.1.2

Standard 7.1.1 

Carry out an investigation that provides evidence that a change in an object's motion is dependent on the mass of the object and the sum of the forces acting on it.  

Standard 7.1.2 

Apply Newton's Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects in a system. Examples could include collisions between two moving objects or between a moving object and a stationary object. 

They will learn about changing an object's motion by forces acting upon it and they will apply Newton's third law of motion in a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects. They will learn about fair tests and variables and they will plan an investigation.

NGSSMS-PS2-1
Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects. Examples of practical problems could include the impact of collisions between two cars, between a car and stationary objects, and between a meteor and a space vehicle. Assessment is limited to vertical or horizontal interactions in one dimension.
NGSSMS-PS2-2
Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object. Emphasis is on balanced (Newton’s First Law) and unbalanced forces in a system, qualitative comparisons of forces, mass and changes in motion (Newton’s Second Law), frame of reference, and specification of units. Assessment is limited to forces and changes in motion in one-dimension in an inertial reference frame, and to change in one variable at a time. Assessment does not include the use of trigonometry.
