In this series of 4 experiments, students will investigate how magnets both attract and repel other magnets. Experiment 4 specifically focuses on how magnets affect motion. Probing questions, ideas for changing variables, assessment ideas and a language arts extension are included.
This is a 5th grade unit for Science. This unit helps students develop their understanding of force, motion, and the relationship between them as well as how factors such as gravity, friction, and change in mass affect the motion of objects.
This resource would probably be most helpful to use during literacy centers or independent work time. Students can listen to the 'playlist' of books on an iPad and then respond to questions about one of the stories.
Using nursery rhymes and a finger play, students will learn about spatial relationships and commonly used position words. Curriculum extension activities/adaptations/integration include common objects in the classroom.
In this lesson, students will work in small groups to experience friction in action as they investigate the movement of toy cars. Students use the scientific process to hypothesize and then test how toy cars travel down ramps using differing variables such as mass and types of materials. They also review and share their results with the class.
In this activity, students understand the effect of the forces of push and pull on motion. Students will take turns acting out a push or a pull.
This resource accompanies our Rethink Kindergarten Science Forces and Motion unit. It includes ideas for use, ways to support exceptional children, ways to extend learning, digital resources and tools, tips for supporting English Language Learners and students with visual and hearing impairments. There are also ideas for offline learning.
