The Newton’s laws of motion, reading in Science content reinforcement activity incorporates a real life narrative to assess students knowledge of the three laws of motion. Using the narrative students will journey through the science process skills. Students will predict what will happen in the narrative before reading, then read and summarize the narrative. After reading they will confirm their predictions, and analyze the information. The activity will then lead them into synthesis and drawing conclusion. Students will be guided by the Physics and physical science content standards, and common core reading in science content standards.
SPS7. Students will determine relationships among force, mass, and motion.
a. Apply Newton’s three laws to everyday situations by explaining the following:
• Relationship between force, mass and acceleration
• Equal and opposite forces
S8P5: Students will recognize characteristics of gravity, electricity, and magnetism as major kinds of forces acting in nature.
a. Recognize that every object exerts gravitational force on every other object and that the force exerted depends on how much mass the objects have and how far apart they are.
