This resource addresses the following standards:

Next Generation Science Common Core Standards:

Under 3-PS2.A

3-PS2.A: Forces and Motion

*Each force acts on one particular object and has both strength and a direction. An object at rest typically has multiple forces acting on it, but they add to give zero net force on the object. Forces that do not sum to zero can cause changes in the object’s speed or direction of motion.

3PS2.B: Types of Interactions

* Objects in contact exert forces on each other.

* Electric, and magnetic forces between a pair of objects do not require that the objects be in contact.

TEKS Standards (Texas)

TEKS.3.6.A

VA SOL Standards (Virginia)

VA SOL 3.2.b

VA SOL 5.2.a

VA SOL 5.2.b

This resource includes task cards in both black and white, and colored versions (same questions in both versions). This allows you to use the colored version for centers and activities, while reinforcing concepts by printing out a black and white page for a quick quiz or reinforcement after a lesson. Two center/seat work activities are also included, as well as links to great force and motion Websites, plus a force and motion game. By the time your students are finished with all of these resources, they will really know their force and motion facts!

Task cards can be used in many different ways:

1. Centers and/or stations…since task cards can be done in any

order, they are easy to share.

2. In pairs or small groups

3. Whole class

a. Quick review before going home, or to specials

b. Teacher reads question, students write answers on white

board

c. Use as an assessment. Task cards don’t feel like a test, so

test phobic students are more relaxed.

4. Independent work at seats

5. Send home for homework as reinforcement for students

needing remediation

6. Test Prep

7. Games..Use game boards and dice. Place task cards upside down above game board. As students move around board they must answer task card questions. Partners use the grading key to tell if the answer is correct. Student may only move if the answer is correct.

8. Scoot...Give one answer sheet and one task card per student. Give students 30 seconds to answer their task card question on the answer sheet. Set timer for 30 seconds again and say, "Scoot". Student leaves his/her card on their desk and move to the next seat to answer that question. When the timer dings say, "Scoot" again and students move to next seat until all cards are answered on the answer sheet.

9. Scavenger Hunt...Hide cards around the classroom. Give each student one answer sheet. Students search for cards and answer them as they are found.

10. Jenga...Number Jenga blocks to 36 (or less if you wish). Students play in groups of three-four and take turns pulling them out. Students all answer the task card number on each block on their answer sheet until the Jenga blocks tumble.

11. Exit ticket...Pass one task card to each student plus one sticky note. Students answer on the sticky note and place on board on the way out the door.

Comments about this resource include:

My kids absolutely loved using the activities in this file. The task cards were great for reinforcement and they loved playing the game.

I really appreciate this resource. Definitely one of my best purchases!

Excellent questions on the task cards. This was a great review for our forces unit. Although the task cards are multiple choice, they are still rigorous.

Thank you for helping me make science more fun!
