This Google Classroom resource invites students to interact with their technology and their peers as they test Newton's 3rd Law for themselves! Students will design protective containers to "save Humpty" from the reactive force of the ground.
These interactive Google slides include:
-A review of Newton’s 3rd law of motion
-A video describing action-reaction pairs & free body diagrams
-Instructions for the “Save Humpty” activity
-Practice drawing action-reaction forces on Humpty
-Practice calculating force
-Data tables for the “save Humpty” activity
-Instructions for calculating velocity, acceleration, and force acting on “Humpty”
-Student reflection of their design
NGSS Standards Met:
MS-PS2-1 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects.
Your students will need an internet connection and a Google Drive account in order to access this resource.
