Learning Objective

TSW research, explore, and test how force causes objects to move in different ways.

  • Product Description
  • Standards

Learning about force and motion is a big part of the Kindergarten Next Gen Science Standards. This 3 week in-depth unit gives students hands on activities, STEM challenges and literacy connections, and math connections to help them understand the big idea, "Forces can cause objects to move in different ways."

See this HUGE unit in action coming soon ON THE BLOG!

THE FOLLOWING NEXT GEN STANDARDS ARE ADDRESSED:

• Force and Motion: K.PS2.1, K.PS2.2

INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT

• unit outline with the big idea and essential question for each week

• weekly detailed lesson plans

• 12 objective cards plus a blank objective card

• 3 writing prompt pages (with and without sentence frames)

• Class Book covers for the 3 writing prompts

• force and motion vocab word find

• 24 vocabulary word wall cards

• Anchor Chart Templates in full color and BW: Move It, Push/Pull, Force Observations, Motions I Make, Direction Words, Stop the Motion, Force/Motion T-Chart, Invent Me/Stem Challenge Steps

• answer keys when needed

• Push or Pull cut and paste sort (color digital file available to do whole group)

• Science Labs: Move it (gravity), Big Box Challenge (force strength), Pushing Cars (speed)

• 5 Force Exploration Stations (signs, directions, and material lists)

• Color the Cube (directional words activity)

• 4 Stopping Motion Exploration Stations (signs, directions, and material lists)

• STEM Challenge direction slides (problem, plan, build, share, publish), planning pages, and publishing pages: Building a Rollercoaster

NGSSK-PS2-1
Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object. Examples of pushes or pulls could include a string attached to an object being pulled, a person pushing an object, a person stopping a rolling ball, and two objects colliding and pushing on each other. Assessment is limited to different relative strengths or different directions, but not both at the same time. Assessment does not include non-contact pushes or pulls such as those produced by magnets.
NGSSK-PS2-2
Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull. Examples of problems requiring a solution could include having a marble or other object move a certain distance, follow a particular path, and knock down other objects. Examples of solutions could include tools such as a ramp to increase the speed of the object and a structure that would cause an object such as a marble or ball to turn. Assessment does not include friction as a mechanism for change in speed.
NGSSK-2-ETS1-3
Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
NGSSK-2-ETS1-2
Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
Participate in shared research and writing projects (e.g., explore a number of books by a favorite author and express opinions about them).
