Product Description
This unit begins by explore concepts that have already been taught in lower grades. First to be taught is motion. Motion has a direct relationship with speed; due to that motion is the changing in the position of the object. The speed of an object can be calculated when there is a given distance and time it took for the object to cover the given distance. Science learning statements for the unit include:
 Motion is the changing of position of an object.
 Point of reference is defined as a point from which movement is
determined and from where it is measured.
 Distance is a measurement of how far two points are from one another.
 The motion of an object in terms of time and distance can be expressed as its speed.
 Speed is equivalent to distance/time.
 A graph of motion can be in measured using distance and time
 Motion can be measured and represented in terms of speed over a time period.
