2. Content

Newton's Laws of Motion
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!
