Science Sampler: Laws of motion

by: Lisa Schunk

What do you get when you cross an electronic whiteboard, online videos, and a room full of sixth graders? This may perhaps sound like an uncontrollable mix, but these simple ingredients create an interesting way to reinforce student understanding of Newton’s laws of motion. This activity can be completed in one class period if each group of three students has access to a computer. If not enough computers are available, you may need additional time for all groups to complete the activity.
