Momentum, force, inertia, velocity, mass, speed, direction, friction, orbit,
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
1.Students can identify Newton's first three laws of motion.
2.Students can demonstrate Newton's first three laws of motion.
3.Students can analyze motion.
4. Objectives-
1.Students understand the differences between the three laws of motion.
2.Students are familiar with the vocabulary associated with motion.
3.Students can analyze motion.
5. Materials and Aids-
Demonstration materials. Movie on motion
Bowling ball
Beach Ball
ping pong balls
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1.Be aware of the vocabulary of motion
2.Identify the 3 laws of motion

B. Development-

1.Define 3 laws of motion
2.Examples of the 3 laws
3.1st Law - Students will place 1000 ping pong balls in hallway during class and observe movement or lack of movement. Students will remain in hallway with ping pong balls as the bell rings and observe movement of balls and students.
2. Resistance - Students will roll bowling ball down stairway during classes and calculate acceleration. They will repeat experiment when the bell rings to determine if resistance from throngs of students using stairway decreases acceleration.
3.Students will ask principal to wait at bottom of 2nd floor balcony and attempt to volley a beach ball back to the top, they will then observe changes in motion as the bowling ball is dropped to be volleyed back.

C. Practice-

1.vocab activity
2.Write the 3 laws

3.Demonstrate 3 laws
Students will


D. Independent Practice-

1.Complete a worksheet on motion
2.Practice definitions of motion
3.Design personal models of understanding

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1.Beach ball, opposed to bowling ball, will be tossed by students with weak motor skills.
2.Oral spelling test.
3.Visual demonstrations of laws for low level readers.

F. Checking for understanding-

1.Quiz on motion
2.Spelling test

G. Closure-

1.Students will participate in verbal summaries of demonstrations.
2.Students will guestimate the time of ambulance arrival and departure from TMCHS.
7. Evaluation-
1.Students spelling will be scored according to accuracy. Close does not count!
2.Students will be scored on active participation of demonstrations.
8. Teacher Reflection-
This has been a delightful learning experience. All humor found within is absolutely appropriate after teaching in a school without power for 8 hours and then joining a four hour edutech class!:) Good night!
