Product Description
This is a three part 1400 slide PowerPoint roadmap with built-in class notes (red slides), hands-on activities with instructions and questions, demonstrations, challenge questions with answers, built- in quizzes, video links, 6 page homework bundle, 11 follow along classwork sheets, lesson notes, answer keys and much more.

Also included are 2 PowerPoint Review games with answer keys and template sheet that are a nice end of the lesson review for Parts I, and II (175 slides each).

Note-Do not purchase this PowerPoint if you have already purchased my Kinetic and Potential Energy PowerPoint and Laws of Motion PowerPoint as this a combination of those two.

Part I of the Unit begins with a basic review of energy over a series of slides before being introduced to Sir Issac Newton. Newtons First Law of Motion is described in a series of step by step slides. A shade technique reveals only one part a time. Several activities with directions are included such as knocking out the bottom domino from a pile, pulling a piece of paper from beneath the domino pile, and a neat sing along song about Newtons First Law. Directions are also included for an accelerating toy car, and scooter board activity. Both include follow-up questions with answers. A series of challenge based question slide follow asking students to make predictions based on animated slides. Inertia is then described again in greater detail and reference to a tight right hand turn and fast moving automobile is described. A center of mass / gravity activity is presented and students use meter sticks and weights to find the center of mass as well as stack Dominoes so that they hang off of the table. A ballistic car demonstration is described, and a human version with a kickball and rolling office chair. A series of multiple choice and move the corner of the room with the correct letter is provided for some review and movement. Newton's Second Law is then described in detail, and a series of slides have students answer questions about F=MA. A neat activity that has students use basketballs and smaller rubber balls to help teach F=MA is provided with procedure, visuals, questions, answers, and more. Newtons 3rd Laws is then covered. A link to a video hoax on YouTube is provided and students try and figure out why the video is a Hoax according to Newton's Laws. The answers to the hoax are then described in a series of slides. Newtons Cradle is described in detail and demonstration provided. This is a great wrap up to the PowerPoint. Three hidden box games conclude the PowerPoint where students need to guess the picture hidden beneath the boxes as each slide unveils more of the picture. Please read the entire Motion and Machines Unit described below before purchasing this PowerPoint.

Part II of the Unit begins describing the first Law of Thermodynamics with a series of unfolding animations. Potential Energy is described and a series of visuals shown. Students are shown an animation of a monkey falling from a tree and catching a banana shot from a cannon. They need to write a sentence that describes potential energy from the animation. They also see another animation of a pole vaulter and describe some potential and are introduced to kinetic energy. The PowerPoint then describes PE=mgh in a step by step process. A series of step by step word problems have students determine Potential Energy. Answers are provides as well as the step by step process of solving the problem. Kinetic Energy is then covered in a similar fashion. Special attention is payed to the order of operations when finding KE= 1/2 M * V2. A really neat bungee jumping egg activity is described with a step by step procedure. The activity uses plastic Easter Eggs, elastic bands, washers (coins work), and string. Students calculate the PE of the egg, height, drop, etc. to determine the correct length of string needed to drop the egg with bungee to prevent the egg from crashing apart on the floor but still getting within a few inches. Another activity that I use with F=MA but pertains to Potential and Kinetic Energy involving different size batteries, heights of ramps, and objects getting hit, is included. Many word problems, and slides are also dedicated to F=MA as well as some neat video links that done by NASA / ESA on the ISS. This is really neat PowerPoint that includes many hands-on activities. It is challenging but not overwhelming. The activities are spread throughout which makes each day interesting.This PowerPoint begins describing centripetal force. A dummy water demonstration follows which has the teacher spin a glass of water upside down using a well balanced tray and some string. A link to a video on YouTube shows some teenagers setting up a motorcycle to spin a merry go round - Needless to say it ends in disaster with a person going flying out in a straight line but is okay. Questions Follow. Speed is presented D/T in a series of slides and word problems with images and the answers follow. The answers are revealed in a step by step process. Velocity is described and a series of word problems follow trying to trick the students between speed vs. velocity. Word problems also work backwards, giving students the time traveled and they determine the distance traveled. Explanations are provided. Acceleration is then covered in a series of slides. A neat animation uncovers a road race one step at a time and students try and predict the winner. They always choose the car that accelerates the fastest which turns out to lose. The winning car gradually builds up speed after a slower start. Deceleration is described and word problems follow. Momentum follows in similar fashion and followed by some word problems with answers. The equation and definition of work is described. Bob the Builder makes a few appearances to make it interesting. A really neat activity concludes this PowerPoint that has students set up a giant "Hotwheels" track in the room and determine all of the above. Materials -Track needed, a car, stopwatch, meter stick. A quiz follows the activity with similar data, the answers are revealed one at a time. The quiz mimics the activity so the students get to do it together before they are asked to do the calculations on their own. This is a really educational and fun PowerPoint. Please see the entire Motion and Machines Unit that I offer on TpT before purchasing this PowerPoint because provides more learning for the buck.

This PowerPoint includes critical notes (Red Slides), exciting visuals, challenge questions, activities with directions and more. Text is usually placed at the top of the slide so it can be read from all angles of a classroom. Color coded slides, as well as a shade technique is used to increase student focus and allows the teacher to control the pace of the lesson. These PowerPoints are meant to be interactive as possible and ask many questions, provides built in review opportunities, explains directions to activities, and much more. Transition effects are never used.


Please visit my other posting on TpT called The Laws of Motion and Simple Machines Unit which includes this PowerPoint within the 2000+ slide PowerPoint roadmap, 12 page bundled homework / assessment, 8 page modified assessment, detailed answer keys, and 12 pages of unit notes for students who may require assistance that chronologically follow the PowerPoint slideshow. The answer keys and unit notes are great for support professionals. This larger file also includes 3 PowerPoint review games (170+ slides each with Answers), 9 .flv videos, lab handouts, activity sheets, rubrics, materials list, templates, guides, and much more.
