Some students remember Newton’s three laws, but most of them never took the time to understand them. This activity is to help the students look at them in a new way. I use two video from youtube to introduce the topic; while the students are watching the video, they are filling out a video worksheet. After the videos are finished, we discuss what they learned. Finally, I have the students read a 2 page article and fill out another worksheet. I recommend using Google forms for the worksheets, but if you prefer to do it with paper I have a document of the questions attached as well.
This activity is perfect for a day when you want the students to do independent work or need a quick sub plan.
