1. Topic

Speed and Speed Measurement 


2. Content

In this lesson, students will focus on understanding speed and speed
measurement. Speed is a measure of fast an object moves or the distance
it moves in a given amount of time. It is measured as distance over
time. 


3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes

The learner will conduct investigations, use models, simulations,
and appropriate technologies and information systems to build an understanding
of motion and forces.



4. Objectives

1.TLW calculate an object's speed.
2.TLW observe through experimentation the relationship between speed
and distance. 


5. Materials and Aids

clay, film container lid, toothpicks, string, scissors,1meter board,
graphing paper, timer/stop watch, pencil,smart board, computer, toy
car, worksheet 


6. Procedures/Methods

A. Introduction
1. Discussion about the student's concept of speed after writing
on the KWL ticket.
2.Discuss key vocabulary
3.Brainstorm on why we need to know and understand speed. 


B. Development
1.Using the smart board, students will watch a video on speed and
measurement.
2.The teacher will explain the procedure for the investigation on
speed.



C. Practice
The teacher will assist the students in constructing their toy car
and the runway board and show the students how to measure the speed
of their toy car.
The teacher will demonstrate how to compute for the average and how
to plot the data on the worksheet. 


D. Independent Practice
1.Students will conduct the investigation and will have up to three
trials.
2. Students will plot their data (distance and time) on the chart
in their worksheet.
3. Students will compute the speed for every trial and will plot the
data on a line graph. 


E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)
1.Students may simply use toycars to maximize time for the investigation.
2.Special students will work with partners.
3.Students may plot the data using bar graph instead of line graph
to make it more visible. 


F. Checking for understanding
1.The teacher will ask relevant questions to check for understanding.
2. Students will construct a graph representation of the summary of
their work and they will answer questions on the worksheet. 


G. Closure
1.Collection of worksheets. Packing up of materials used and cleaning
of the area.
2. The teacher will review the lesson on speed and speed measurement
with the students.
3. The teacher will ask students to summarize what was learned by
completing the KWL exit ticket. 


7. Evaluation

1.The teacher will check students' worksheet to find out if they
are able to utilize the chart, calculate speed, and construct a graph
correctly
2.The teacher will also check the toy cars constructed to assess if
the students considered other factors that may affect its speed.
