Force and Motion
Monday,
January 4
3-PS2-1
Set background: A force is a push or pull that, if
not met with an equal and opposite force,
causes a change in motion for one or both of the
interacting objects. Motion in response to a
force can be a change in rotation rate (spin),
change in speed, or change in direction of
motion. Change in motion of any kind is called
acceleration, which can be a speeding up,
slowing down, changing direction, spinning
faster, or spinning slower. Force causes
acceleration. (SMART Board notes)
Formative
Assessment:
(Exit slip, rubric, observation
checklist, pre-assessment,
writing to learn, demonstrate
learning, etc.)
Accessing Prior
Knowledge
Hook: Students are introduced to balanced and
unbalanced forces by playing the game, “Tug-ofWar.”
