Newton's Laws seem simple to teach, but often they are a struggle to comprehend in depth. In this inquiry-based STEM lab students will be engaged in a variety of different tasks from videos, simulations and mini labs to connect each of Newton's laws when exploring one object or a pair of objects. This is one of my student's favorite labs because they are interacting, discovering, and applying the 21st Century Skills throughout the lab.

This lab requires only simple materials and computer access. There is also an optional mini lab for the Action Reaction station. Watch your students learn, connect and apply each of Newton's Laws with this lab. Check out the preview for a sampling of the stations and teachers guide with materials list.

NGSSMS-PS2-1
Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects. Examples of practical problems could include the impact of collisions between two cars, between a car and stationary objects, and between a meteor and a space vehicle. Assessment is limited to vertical or horizontal interactions in one dimension.
NGSSMS-PS2-2
Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object. Emphasis is on balanced (Newton’s First Law) and unbalanced forces in a system, qualitative comparisons of forces, mass and changes in motion (Newton’s Second Law), frame of reference, and specification of units. Assessment is limited to forces and changes in motion in one-dimension in an inertial reference frame, and to change in one variable at a time. Assessment does not include the use of trigonometry.
