Work, forces, simple machines, Newton’s laws “I have, who has” game - Transform unit review or test preparation from a tedious chore to a fun and engaging game! Your students will thank you for providing them with a fun, interactive experience when learning about work, forces, Newton's laws, and simple machines. This type of review has worked wonders in my classroom not only with student engagement, but with retention of the material resulting in improved scores on standardized tests!
In this exercise the students review key vocabulary over work, forces, Newton's laws and simple machines (basic physics) by playing an “I have, who has” card-based game.
40 card “I have, who has” game covering work, forces, Newton’s Laws, and simple machines. Game was created for middle grades (5th-8th).
Accompanying maze style worksheet to ensure student engagement. Worksheet also allows you to check for understanding and take a grade if desired.
Supplemental wrap up worksheet for advanced classes or additional rigor if desired. Worksheet is optional.
Full teacher keys
Teacher guide with various methods to change the style and duration of the game to allow for differentiation and to accommodate different classes and different learners. Example: instructions for a shorter, “speed round” version to use as a warm-up or class starter.
Overview of lesson
Approximately one class period in length, as a point of reference, I teach a 50-minute class. Easily modified to be shorter or longer depending on the needs of specific classes. High level thinking strategies and varied activities allow for different learning styles and will aid any teacher attempting to differentiate their classroom. This lesson was created for middle grades and is a great review or practice to help students understand the many concepts and academic vocabulary found in any basic physics unit. This is an extremely popular lesson in my classroom! Students love the “game” aspect of this type of exercise.
