Force and motion are fundamental to all matter in the universe. Motion is the process of an object moving or being moved. While a force is anything that can push or pull on an object. Forces influence objects that are either at rest or are already in motion. This video describes how force and motion interact. Students will discover how forces applied to an object cause motion. They will also learn about Isaac Newton’s three laws of motion. These laws are the law of inertia, the formula that force equals mass times acceleration, and the rule that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. The video also touches on the topics of force of gravity and magnetism. The real-life examples will help students understand complex concepts in a smile way.
This video satisfies the 3-PS2-2 requirement for third-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
3-PS2-2. Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
