Product Description

This unit begins with the concepts of position, distance, and speed. I integrated many math concepts and provided the option of using a calculator for ease. Then I moved into motion – exploring that motion can start, speed up, change direction, slow down, and stop. I also focused on how it can move, such as in a straight motion, a zigzag motion, round and round, so on. Then I created activities to explore that forces are simply a push and pull. There are many activities to explore a few types of motion, such as gravity and magnetism. Finally, I provided some activities and experiments that focus on the force of friction.

Who is it for?

  • 2nd Graders, (7 to 8-year-olds)
  • 3rd Graders (8 to 9-year-olds)
  • 4th Graders (9 to 10-year-olds)
  • 5th Graders (10 to 11-year-olds)
  • Educators
  • Your little scientist
  • Homeschoolers

 

What's included?

  •  Lesson Plans
  •  Experiments/Lab
  •  Practice Pages
  •  Journaling Pages

In this unit, I tried to make a lot of practice sheets to reinforce the concepts of force and motion, along with many hands-on experiments. Many experiments are set up so that if you wanted to have students explore it a bit further on their own, you can. These experiments can be used in centers, as demonstrations, or as a whole class exploration.

About the Seller

I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelors in Science degree and an elementary education certificate. I am certified to teach K-8 Self-Contained and Middle School Science. I have taught ever since graduation,with most of my experience in 5th grade. I'm currently completing my Masters program in Differentiation.  I utilize a lot of differentiated strategies along with the workshop model in reading, writing, math, and sometimes science. I love more hands-on activities that are related to real life for students to explore. I'm not a huge fan of worksheets, but do use them occasionally.
