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.
6B. understands the concepts and interrelationships of force (including gravity and friction), inertia, work, power, energy, and momentum
6C. understands the nature and properties of electricity and magnetism.
6G. describes the effects of gravitational, electromagnetic, and nuclear forces in real life situations."
Unit III “Newton's Laws” folder contains four comprehensive PowerPoint lessons; three review programs with printable color PDF worksheets; four student PPT note guides; a unit vocabulary sheet; several student worksheets and activities (PDF); quizzes, and a unit assessment (all multiple choice, matching, true/false questions) PDF and Word 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 of each PowerPoint lesson.
Individual lessons/programs (not assessments) can also be found separately in the AstronomyDad store.
