Students will understand the relationship between the force applied to an object and resulting motion of the object.
Objective 2
Demonstrate that the greater the force applied to an object, the greater the change in speed or direction of the object.

  • Flicking With Force
    Balls of varying weights are used to discover the results of force applied to an object.
  • Hammer Time!
    Students will predict, observe, and compare what happens when a force is applied to an object.
  • May the Best Force Win
    Sports activity stations will help the student observe and understand that the greater the force applied to an object, the greater the change in speed or direction of the object.
  • May the Force Be With You
    This hands-on activity will help students understand that greater the mass of an object, the greater the force needed to change its motion.
  • Rock-A-Bye Pendulum
    Students will use the scientific process to explore the effects of force on an object in motion.
  • Rolling Along
    Classroom and homework activities illustrate how wheels and axles help with force and motion.
  • Sliding Along
    Students will use the "sliding along ruler" to measure different items accurately.
  • Super Paper Planes
    This activity, done in pairs, helps students understand force, mass and measurement.
  • TRB 3:3 - Investigation 4 - Collision Zone
    Students will learn how forces of push and pull can change speed or direction.
  • TRB 3:3 - Investigation 5 - Balloon Rockets
    Students will make a balloon rocket and learn about the relationship between the force applied to an object and the resulting motion.
