Force and Motion

Posted on

We are currently focusing on Force & Motion. We are looking closely at how things move. We started by talking about motion which is the movement from one place to another or physical movement like twirling, waving, etc. Things move in certain ways- according to path and direction. The students have been completing a variety of experiments measuring distance and speed, as well as, force (the push or pull). We have also looked  closely at friction and gravity and are currently discussing simple machines.

Our test will be February 28th. Here is the website that contains the flashcards of key vocabulary terms that you can work on at home (these were sent home 2 weeks ago):
