This unit aligns with the Common Core State Standards:
"STANDARD 6 - Force and Motion
The competent science teacher understands and applies the concepts that describe force and motion and the principles that explain them.
6A. understands the concepts and interrelationships of position, time, velocity, and acceleration.
6E. describes and predicts motions of bodies in inertial and accelerated frames of reference and in one and two dimensions in a physical system with association to the basic theories of force and motion."
Unit II “Motion” folder contains three comprehensive PowerPoint lessons; two review programs with printable color PDF worksheets; three student PPT note guides; a unit vocabulary sheet; several student worksheets and activities (in Word, PDF and flipcharts); quizzes, and a unit assessment (all multiple choice, matching, true/false questions) with answer keys.
PowerPoint lessons contain many graphics and at least two links to short videos for each lesson to further student understanding.
PowerPoint slides also contain notes for the instructor based on students most "frequently asked questions" or FAQ's to help clarify the subject. A class activity is included at the end of each lesson and a 20-question interactive quiz/review at kahoot.it is also included as a link in the last slide.
Individual lessons/programs (not assessments) can also be found separately in the AstronomyDad store.
