    Forces and Motion Digital Assignments (INCLUDED FOR FREE)

    Modified bell ringers, homework and reading passages into PDF files with fillable forms for electronic distribution and collection. Students complete their work in the file, assisting paper free classrooms, absent students and remote learning. Key included.

    Forces and Motion Task Cards

    40 differentiated and tiered task card questions to help assess your students on important concepts covered in this physical science unit. Answer sheets (differentiated) and key included.

    Forces and Motion Lab Stations Activities

    SNAPs Lab Stations are differentiated laboratory activities that require students to use science, math, literacy, problem-solving and engineering skills. These labs are designed to enhance students' understanding of scientific concepts and help students apply scientific ideas to the real world. This bundle includes 12 SNAPs lab activities:

    Types of Forces Lab Stations Activity

    Friction Lab Stations Activity

    Buoyancy Lab Stations Activity

    Earth's Gravity Lab Stations Activity

    Gravitational Force Relationships Lab Stations Activity

    Net Force and Newton's 2nd Law of Motion Lab Stations Activity

    Patterns of Motion Lab Stations Activity

    Velocity & Acceleration Lab Stations Activity

    Motion Graphs Lab Stations Activity

    Inertia & Newton's 1st Law of Motion Lab Stations Activity

    Collisions, Momentum & Newton's 3rd Law of Motion Lab Stations Activity

    Next Generation Science Standards

    This unit bundle satisfies NGSS 3-PS2-1, 3-PS2-2, 5-PS2-1, MS-PS2-1, MS-PS2-2 and MS-PS2-4.



    Daily lessons are an economical alternative to my unit bundles. A single lesson rebundles the resources in the unit bundle for a SINGLE topic. Daily lessons do NOT include task cards, summative exams or labs. A lesson includes a bell ringer, INB Lesson, editable PP slides, editable scaffolded and modified notes, homework, reading passage and digital assignments. Links for lessons covering the topics in this unit are listed below:

    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.
    Support an argument that the gravitational force exerted by Earth on objects is directed down. “Down” is a local description of the direction that points toward the center of the spherical Earth. Assessment does not include mathematical representation of gravitational force.
    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.
    Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion. Examples of motion with a predictable pattern could include a child swinging in a swing, a ball rolling back and forth in a bowl, and two children on a see-saw. Assessment does not include technical terms such as period and frequency.
    Construct and present arguments using evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive and depend on the masses of interacting objects. Examples of evidence for arguments could include data generated from simulations or digital tools; and charts displaying mass, strength of interaction, distance from the Sun, and orbital periods of objects within the solar system. Assessment does not include Newton’s Law of Gravitation or Kepler’s Laws.
