Science - 3rd Grade
Students will understand the relationship between the force applied to an object and resulting motion of the object.
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.
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.
Students will use the scientific process to explore the effects of force on an object in motion.
Classroom and homework activities illustrate how wheels and axles help with force and motion.
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.
