Fun with force and motion! Kristen Smith Oh my goodness. We learned all about gravity, forces, motions and had a science investigation each afternoon to help us understand these concepts. After each investigation we wrote about our experience and then shared our findings.
It was such a fabulous week of learning. To help us understand motion speed, pushes and pullswe used marble mazes. I put my students into three groups and they each worked on building different structures. They had to use their new vocabulary words while they were building and were given a few different tasks.
The first structure they made had to show speed. They worked together to get their marbles down their mazes quickly. This activity was such a HUGE hit, we did it again the next day. However, the second day, my students had to create a maze where it would take the marble a long time to travel through the maze.
To say they loved it is an understatement. On Friday, my students came to school very proudly with their shoe boxes.
Some of my kids tried the experiment at home multiple times to ensure that their egg would not break!
Then, I dropped each box one at a time. My students loved it so much that they asked if they could do the experiment again. I said sure and they closed up their boxes and tried it for themselves! I have to say, they created some awesome boxes because we were able to do this multiple times!
The poor penguin did not make it!
Sometimes we were successful! Sometimes, we were not. If you would like to complete these activities, they are available in my force and motion pack.
The pack includes lesson plans, recording sheets, parent pages, and more! You can get the pack by clicking on the cover below!
