Students will learn about forces, motion, and the directions of objects based on the forces applied to them. The forces students will learn about include push, pull, and gravity. Students will learn that forces applied will cause an object to move, and the forces applied also help determine the direction of the object’s motion. Students will learn that they can predict the direction and changes in direction of an object. To practice these skills, students will participate in various activities, including watching videos about forces and discussing the concepts afterward, sorting forces by type, participating in a whole class activity about forces and changes in the direction of motion, and predicting the change in direction of an object in a real-life scenario.
Students will be able to predict how objects will change direction with different forces.
Have students participate in a turn and talk with a partner to answer the question on slide 2. Afterward, explain to students that the expected answer is to be pulled, which is a type of force. Tell students that there are different kinds of forces that cause objects to move and change direction. Inform students that their goal for today is to be able to practice predicting the direction of objects based on the forces applied to the objects.
Teach students about forces, types of forces (push, pull, and gravity), motion, and predicting motion and change of direction based on the forces applied to the object. Afterward, students can engage in the following activities:
First, students will watch videos about forces and then engage in discussion answering the provided questions in response to the video. Next, students will drag and sort images by their type of force. Afterward, students will participate in a whole class activity where they will make a prediction about the direction and change of direction of an object and then try it out in real life.
Students respond to ten questions about forces, motion, and predicting motion and change in direction. The question types include multiple-choice and sorting.
Students will show what they have learned by drawing out the path of the direction of a ball in a make-believe soccer game situation.
For this lesson, one activity requires a ball and a basket or bin.
