Introduction to Forces- Year 5

Introduction to Forces- Year 5

***ZIPFILE WITH DIFFERENTIATED ACTIVITIES AND VOCABULARY SORTS TO INTRODUCE CHILDREN TO FORCES*** Includes: SEN/EAL match activity Detailed Plan SMART board Scaffold for activity SEN Activity An introduction lesson to forces. The objective of this lesson is to understand some of the effects of gravity. Children are introduced to the topic vocab through a definition match at the beginning of the lesson. They will also be introduced to the two scientists Galileo and Newton. For an activity, children will be researching these two scientists to find out what their part was in discovering gravity and presenting it in a newspaper article. This lesson is well differentiated also with resources for SEN and Low Ability children. The presentation is saved as a notebook file (notebook viewer can be downloaded for free online to view it).

Newton's Three Laws of Motion - A Lock Box Escape Quest (WITH Math) for STEM Day

Newton's Three Laws of Motion - A Lock Box Escape Quest (WITH Math) for STEM Day

After your initial preparation, the beauty of this activity is that it is entirely student-driven! They will know whether they got the correct answer to the clue because there is a self-correcting code to crack. Everyone participates, because when one group finishes before the others, the rules of the quest include the instruction to split up and help another group finish. The instructions below are for 6 groups of students. If you have fewer groups, follow the directions in parentheses. Materials needed: Construction paper: Yellow, Red, and Blue 18 business-size envelopes (15 for 5 groups, 12 for 4 groups) 3 small boxes (shoe boxes are perfect) Copy paper 3 markers Adhesive tape Assorted prizes Preparation: 1. Print three lock images. It’s okay if you don’t have a color printer – simply print in black and white and attach to the colored construction paper. 2. Designate each box as Newton’s First Law (blue), Second Law (yellow), and Third Law (red). Attach the prepared lock images to each box. 3. Cut eighteen 3” x 5” rectangles from the yellow, red, and blue construction paper. Attach to the envelopes: 6 yellow, 6 red, and 6 blue. (15 for 5 groups, 12 for 4 groups) 4. Print the Clue Sheet for each combination. Insert it in the designated color envelope. 5. Before the students enter the room, hide the envelopes. 6. Show the PowerPoint. 7. At the BEGIN slide, let the students search for the envelopes. Remind them that only one person from a group may be up and searching. Each time they look for an envelope, a different group member searches for a different color. 8. When the students get their combination number, one person will enter it on the box locks. This activity has self-correcting answers! If they don’t get a number as an answer, they will know that it is incorrect! If you have fewer than six groups, simply place a random number in the spaces you don’t use. 9. When one group finishes with three different color envelopes, they are to split up and help other groups. 10. When all the groups have finished, go over all the examples for each of Newton’s Laws of Motion. Either let the students present their findings, or you can show the finished products to the class, elaborating on each. 11. Show the reward slides on the PowerPoint. Some examples of rewards include homework passes, extra points on tests, dollar store goodies, stickers, etc. 12. When the activity is over, post the examples of each law next to the locks so everyone can see each other’s examples every day for a while!
