How do you get home from school? There are many ways to go from one place to another. You can walk, ride a bike, go by car or bus. If you pay attention, you will see that everything is in motion around us. Things are always either moving closer, away, or past us. This video will ask students series of questions to warm up their minds and make them observe patterns of movement around them.
Moving things follow different paths. Motion can be straight (bow and arrow) circular (merry go round), up and down, zig-zag (cars), and side-to-side. In addition to different paths, moving things also follow different speeds. The students will also learn how to use arrows to show movements.
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.
