Day 1 SUBJECT: Science

OBJECTIVE: Students will learn about Newton's Laws and investigate how force can change the motion or position of an object? Anticipatory Set/ Review Toss a ball against the blackboard to get the attention of the students. Pose the question: Have you ever wondered why the ball keeps coming back? Developmental 1. Students will be introduced to the two essential questions for this unit: Essential questions: How can force change the motion or position of an object? How can electricity produce light, heat, sound and magnetic effects? Students will complete a K-W-L chart for this unit, which will be posted on the wall for the remainder of the unit. 2. Students will be presented to an overview of Newton s 3 laws via a PowerPoint mini lesson. They will be asked to capture answers to key questions in their study guide as they listen to and participate in the mini lesson. Students will share what they ve learned from the mini lesson. CLOSURE Students will be asked how we ve started to answer the essential question for force: How can force change the motion or position of an object? Students will be asked to tell each of Newton s laws and provide an example of each law. ASSESSMENT/ RUBRICS: Students will be assessed on the answers they completed in the study guide. Students will be assessed based upon the completed lab. Teacher will assess class participation in discussions.

Day 2 SUBJECT: Science

OBJECTIVE: Students will perform hands-on activities related to Newton's Laws. Anticipatory Set/ Review How can force change the motion or position of an object? Developmental 1. Students will be given a mini lesson on participating in labs. a. Discuss the key parts of the scientific process. Purpose, Prediction, Materials, Procedure, Observations, Conclusions b. Will work in groups of 2 (see preassigned partner lists for the unit) c. Timers will be used to let them know when lab is over. d. Roles will be assigned for labs. Important to remember the roles for safety and health reasons. All labs will have material managers. (Stress importance of returning all materials.) Some labs will have additional responsibilities. e. As a class, draw a chart of lab procedures i. Read all directions first. ii. Clarify anything that is not understood. iii. Make sure you have all materials before starting. iv. Check off lab steps as they are performed. v. Answer questions and draw pictures as needed. vi. Be prepared to explain what happened and why you think it happened. 2. Today, students will be introduced to the Rocket to the Moon lab that will help them understand Newton s 3rd Law better. Directions for the lab will be discussed with entire class before lab begins. a. Roles: Materials Manager, Inflator b. Discuss handling of balloon blowing up, throwing away. No one may keep any materials. Material manager is responsible for returning all materials. Students will share what they ve learned from the lab. CLOSURE Students will be asked what they learned about the essential question for force: How

Rocket t o t he Moon Lab OBSERVATION Draw a picture of what you observed:

Now, write a few sentences about what you observed.

CONCLUSION What causes this to occur?

Circle the Newton Law demonstrated by this lab: 1st - An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted on by an unbalanced force. 3rd - For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. What causes this to occur?

Day 3 SUBJECT: Science

OBJECTIVE: Students will perform hands-on activities related to Newton's Laws. Anticipatory Set/ Review Review observations from previous day s Rocket to the Moon lab. Which of Newton s Laws did we see in practice? Developmental 1. Students will be reminded of the essential question: How can force change the motion or position of an object? 2. Begin discussion of Force/ Motion journal. Observe how often you see forces or motions at work in the world around you. Record the examples in the chart below. a. Write the laws on the board. i. 1st law: an object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force ii. 3rd law: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. b. Brainstorm examples of the laws. Fill in at least 4 examples. Assign remaining 3 blanks for homework. 3. Lab a. Students will review chart of lab procedures. b. Today, students will be introduced to the Coin Lab that will help them understand Newton s 1st Law better. Directions for the lab will be discussed with entire class before lab begins. c. Students will share what they ve learned from the lab. CLOSURE Students will be asked what they learned about the essential question for force: How can force change the motion or position of an object?

Coin Lab Scientists: __________________________________ PURPOSE: What do you want to find out? PREDICTION: What do you think will happen? Date:

Will a coin move if the material underneath it is quickly pulled away??

MATERIALS What items do you need to perform this experiment? PROCEDURE What steps will you follow?

3x5 card Small cloth coin

1. Place a 3x5 card on the table. 2. Put the coin on top of the card. 3. Quickly pull the card out from under the coin. Document what happened in the observation space below. 4. Place a small cloth on the table. 5. Put the coin on top of the cloth. 6. Quickly pull the cloth out from under the coin. Document what happened in the observation space below.

CONCLUSION What causes this to occur?

Circle the Newton Law demonstrated by this lab: 1 st - An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted on by an unbalanced force. 3 rd - For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. If the coin moved, why did it move? If it did not move, what kept it f r om moving? (Think in t er ms of Newt on s Laws, and use the scientific terms in the laws to describe what occurred.)

Day 4 SUBJECT: Science

OBJECTIVE: Students will learn about forces that act at a distance: gravity and magnetism, and will understand the forces of magnetism by performing a lab. Anticipatory Set/ Review So far, we ve been looking into forces that we can touch and feel. Yet, there are many forces we cannot see. These forces have tremendous power. Who can think of an invisible, yet powerful force? Developmental 1. Teacher will alternate with students in reading the material in the packet on gravity and magnetism. 2. Students will answer questions about each topic. 3. Lab: Students will experiment with magnetism, determining the objects attracted by magnets using the Invisible Force worksheet. They will draw conclusions about what happens to the objects that were attracted to the magnets.

CLOSURE Students will be asked what they learned from the experiment. Does a force have to be visible to act on an object?
