In this activity, students will investigate different ways to move a ball. Students will start with a large list of movements and work together to categorize them. Next, they will use claim and evidence statements to help them organize each category of movement and review and revise their groupings as needed. Students will use the term force to explain how they moved the ball in different ways.
Motion and Stability
Real World Science Topics:
- A comparison of the movements of objects
- An evaluation of the relationship between movement and force
After completing this activity, students should be able to plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that changing in an object's motion requires force.
