Product Description

The Forces and Motion Tic-Tac-Toe activity allows students to apply what they know about forces and motion in a creative and interactive way. Students must create an illustrated dictionary of terms and choose two additional concepts to test. The project should take about a week to complete. This resource can be adapted for nearly all grade levels based on the open-ended nature of the activities. More advanced students can create more complex experiments, while lower students can be given a list of experiments to choose from.

Possible Extension: Have students test their own experiments as well as one other student's. Create a table on the board or an anchor chart to record results.

Example activities:

  • Gravity: Bounce a ball from 3 different heights and measure how far it bounces up.
  • Friction: Roll a matchbox car down a ramp covered in felt and one covered in sandpaper. Measure the distance from the bottom of the ramp.
  • Speed: Measure the speed of a matchbox car pushed from a start line with two different objects.
  • Pushes: Use a catapult to launch a pom-pom and measure how far it travels from a half launch and a full launch.
  • Pulls: Use a hula hoop to pull 3 different balls a set distance. Time each trial to determine which needed the greatest pull.
  • Magnets: Use two different magnets to pick up as many paperclips as possible. Count how many each can hold.
  • Equal & Opposite: Line up 5 pennies so they touch. Launch one penny towards the end of the row from a measured distance. Record the distance that the final penny travels.
