I developed this one class period (power point based) lesson to introduce my students to the concepts of relative motion and reference points as we begin our unit on the Laws of Motion.
The lesson begins with a Warm-up and ends with an Exit Card. Everything in between will guide your students to understanding these foundational concepts in physical science.
Slide 3: Warm Up; discuss student responses
Slides 4 -5: introduce concepts of motion, reference point and relative motion
Slide 6: Link to Relative Motion video 1 and post video comprehension questions (answers on slide 6 are animated)
Slides 7-8: Student copies of questions
Slide 9 – answer for question # 4
Slide 10 – 2nd relative motion video and post video questions
Slide 11 – Answer Key
Slide 12 – Exit Card
