Newton's 3 laws of motion review and gallery walk.

Newton's 3 laws of motion review and gallery walk.

I use this for reinforcement or as a review of the three laws of motion. Included is a student note sheet with a grid to answer the laws of motion slides on the sheet as well. Includes a review of Newton's 3 laws of motion. A 37 slide powerpoing which includes 30 different motion pictures and or descriptions on each slide. I print out the slides two to a sheet and cut them in half and hang them around the room. However it can be done as a station activity as well. Students must identify which law of motion they think is happening. Then they must write a brief description of why they think it is that law since most of the slides can apply to all 3 laws of motion. Sorry since every student can have different answers depending on how they perceive the slide there isn't an answer key. What I did was have students pair up and grade each others and defend their answers to each other.
