Forces and Motion Collection
for third grade
My resource collection is based on the topic for my CAT. The students in my classroom were working on physical sciences so I decided to teach them about forces and motion. At first I just tried to find any resources regarding forces and motions. I used those sources to find ideas that pertained more towards third grade. I also used forces and motion for the lesson during our class.
I chose the "Energy: Thermal Energy, Heat, and Temperature" one just in case they did really good on forces and motion and could dig deeper into energy.
At first I just picked the Newton's Laws because it looked interesting but then I figured it was a big part of forces and motion since many of the ideas are based off these laws.
I chose the "Position and Motion" because the students seemed confused by actions happening with positions. The probe I gave them showed forces acting on both sides of a car and then people playing tug-a-war. I thought they needed more help wi
