Product Description
A solid understanding of Newton’s laws of motion are critical to students understanding motion, conservation of energy, and conservation of momentum. Rather than do a worksheet, try this quick and fun cooperative learning sorting activity.

Students get 28 examples of motion and have to determine which law or laws of motion apply to each one. You get a lot of learning with a quick activity (15-30 minutes) depending on your students and how you use it. My experience is that this makes net force problems, work, energy, and momentum much easier later on. You can use it as a cooperative learning activity or as a quiz.

There is not a key because it depends on how deeply students examine most of situations. With real thought most students can defend all three laws for the motion events. Let them explain it to each other and then to you and they’ll have learned it well. The discussion of the situations is where the value lies. You can have students cut out the cards and keep them to study or have them cut out and organized in zip bags to use over and over again.
