PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will construct a vehicle that moves using the principles of Newton's Third Law of Motion. This project also includes writing a reflection paper of their trial and error process, drawing a diagram including vectors of all the forces, and presenting & testing their scooter before the class, meeting a minimum travel distance.

With this purchase you will receive a two-page student handout which lists all the project requirements & guidelines, a rubric that is based on a score of 100 so a corresponding percentage is built in, and a partner agreement & consent form. I require this for any major group projects so that students and parents understand and agree that they are committed to the partnership.

I plan this lesson to last 5 days with a weekend somewhere in the middle.
Day 1: Introduce the project, guidelines, due dates, partner requirements, brainstorming materials & modes of action.
Day 2: Student work day for planning, collaborating with partner (if applicable)
Day 3: Student work day.
Day 4: Presentations & testing scooters
Day 5: Presentations & testing scooters

Try to plan this with a weekend falling after day 2 or 3. I generally get through 10 presentations in a 60 minute class period. Your schedule may vary depending on the number of students, groups, and the total number of projects that will be presented.
