## Makey Takey: Forces and Motion

Icon:

This kit is designed for use in the 3rd grade classroom. This was designed to address the Next Gen. Science standard 3-PS2-1: Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object. The accompanying lesson plan can be found later in this catalog record.

The kit includes the following materials:

Content Area:

## Space Force

Find space treasure with physics! As a member of the starship Copernicus, you’ll use force, motion, and mass to recover lost riches.

## Moving Things (2013)

Icon:
Icon:

A ball flying through the air, a deer walking in the woods, and a flowing river - these are all examples of moving things. This action-packed video explores the characteristics of things in motion. Special attention is given to the forces that initiate and change the movement of things.

## Laws of Motion (1999)

Icon:

Isaac Newton himself shows students how gravity, friction, and inertia are related to mass, force, and momentum. Exciting graphics and re-creations allow students to see how Newton's laws of motion relate to real life. Experiments with roller blades, baseballs, and other common objects encourage students to make science exploration recreational.
