This packet includes lesson plans for Unit 1 including all 4 standards in Next Generation Science Standards Grade 3 Unit 1 -Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
3-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.
3-PS2-2. Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
3-PS2-3. Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.
3-PS2-4. Define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.
Each lesson includes:
Specific Learning Outcomes
Two links to download powerpoint presentations and a link to video are included.
Concepts include force, balanced force, unbalanced force, patterns of motion, effect of force on motion, magnets, magnetic fields, electrical fields, and how magnets solve problems in every day life.
