This third grade force and motion resource is a complete unit to teach forces, motion, and magnets aligned to NGSS as well as many 3rd grade state science standards.
Students are engaged through 23 high-interest lessons in a vividly detailed teaching Power Point. During each lesson students are presented with engineering connections and real-world problems that enable them to understand how forces, motion, electricity, and magnetism are used in their everyday lives. Students gain lab experience and use science process skill as they plan and carry out investigations and experiments. Lessons are followed up by science journal activities that reinforce the lesson, turn and talk partner discussion questions, and partner activity labs.
Assessing each lesson is easily differentiated using the fill in the blank option or the short, written response format. A unit test concludes the unit.
This resource includes detailed, scripted lesson plans, focus wall guiding questions posters and objectives cards, science center extension activities, and related lesson videos and books list all in a helpful planning binder. I’ve made it easier than ever to plan and teach a highly engaging and effective science unit, stress-free!

THIRD GRADE TEACHERS
I am currently working on a 3rd grade yearlong curriculum aligned to NGSS.
Sign up HERE if you would like me to email you when new 3rd grade science units are released and deeply discounted for a limited time.
Note: This is a very large unit that downloads as a zipped (ZIP) folder with 3 separate files inside. You will need to “unzip” the folder to access and open the files correctly. CLICK HERE for directions to open a ZIP file.
