Newton’s Three Laws of Motion – Fully editable and Complete 5E Lesson Bundle. By purchasing this bundle you will save 43% vs. purchasing the individual components separately.
By the end of this 5E lesson, students will:
– Students will be able to describe Newton’s three laws of motion verbally
– Students will be able to perform calculations based on the laws as well as be able to apply them to real life situations
– Students will learn about the man behind the laws
– Students will develop collaboration and planning skills
By the end of this 5E lesson, students will be able to:
– Describe how the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces acting on the object and the mass of the object.
– Analyze data to support the claim that Newton’s second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.
– State Newton’s laws, and apply them, in qualitative terms, to explain the effect of forces acting on objects
– Plan and conduct an inquiry to analyze the effect of forces acting on objects in one dimension, using vector diagrams, free-body diagrams, and Newton’s laws
How does the 5E model facilitate learning?
– It emphasizes inquiry, critical thinking, and the process of science
– Its success is backed by countless scientific studies that demonstrate its effectiveness
– It’s built around the idea that humans construct knowledge and meaning from their learning experiences. That they build upon their prior knowledge and to be effective, learning needs to be active and allow the participants to construct new knowledge from their experiences
– This could involve a short video with probing question or a discussion based around current events, common misconceptions, etc.
– Creates interest and excitement for your students
– Asks questions and probes their initial conceptions
– For a complete description of the lab station activity, please see below
– Students use and develop creative thinking skills, make observations, record results, and make connections
– In this phase, students will complete a special 7-station, Lab Activity where they will gain real experiences with the topic
**Note: The lab station activity requires very little preparation or materials**
– This is the instructional phase where concepts are presented to the students in a clear and applicable way
– Students develop understanding of the content
– Observations and experiences are discussed and critiqued
– Students develop vocabulary
– Students are able to connect the content presented to previous experiences
– There are 3 lessons included
– This bundle includes one lesson in PowerPoint and .PDF formats. For a complete description of it, please see below
– This phase involves the students completing an activity or assignment that forces them to expand their thinking and knowledge of the topic. They will propose solutions and extend their learning to new situations
– Within this bundle, there are two Elaborate components
– The first component is a reading on Sir Isaac Newton that will test your students’ understanding of Newton’s Laws as well as further their understanding of the man who started it all. For a complete description of the activity, please see below
– The second component is a video assignment that will extend your students understanding while allowing them to be creative
– Students are given the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding and evaluate their own progress
– This phase will have your students complete a set of Homework questions (answers included)
The NRC’s How People Learn has synthesized decades of research across many different disciplines about how people learn (NRC, 1999 blue right-pointing triangle). Key findings from that synthesis include the following. First, students (people) must be interested and engaged in what they are learning and find it useful and meaningful. Second, students (people) must be actively involved in the process of teaching and learning, comparing new information to previous ideas, constructing new understandings, and quite simply changing their own minds about how the world works. And third, students (people) need opportunities to apply what they have learned to new situations, to check the completeness of their understanding, and to evaluate their own learning for themselves.

By incorporating this 5E lesson, you will provide your students with a meaningful and coherent way of learning that best suits their needs. You will also utilize technology in a way that creates order and promotes understanding.
Explore – Newton’s Three Laws of Motion – 7 Engaging and Unique Lab Station Activities
This fully editable Lab Station Activity on Newton’s Three Laws of Motion is meant to get your kids out of their seats and engaged in the content. Each station not only offers a unique opportunity to test your students’ knowledge (offer an opinion, answer questions based on a video or reading, draw, etc.), but also provides a fantastic learning opportunity where your kids are learning through assessment. Each station comes with a description card while some also contain more detailed instructions, a reading, questions to answer, etc. Students are equipped with a recording sheet (passport) to write their answers. There is almost no prep for you. Simply print the cards, lay them out around the room and you’re all set. An answer key is also provided where applicable.
“Awesome resource! Great links!”
“Amazing! Such a time saver and my class loved the whole unit.”
“Love the lesson. Well thought out.”
How do the Lab Stations work? Each station is specially designed to be a unique complement to the material while at the same time, provide a valuable learning experience. Below is an overview of how each station works. In your activity, each will be tailored to the specific content.
Station 1: Get Hands-On – using their creative skills, students are required to draw or build.
Station 2: Research – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must research a specific question/issue surrounding the topic.
Station 3: Explain yourself – students write down an opinion to a question in paragraph form.
Station 4: Rest Station – students can use this time to catch up on work they didn’t have time to complete at a previous station or prepare themselves for an upcoming one.
Station 5: Applicability reading – students read a short passage from an article, website, etc. which directly connects the classroom content to a real life application.
Station 6: Test your knowledge – students answer 5 multiple choice questions then provide a written explanation for how/why they came to their conclusions.
Station 7: Learn from the expert – using a classroom computer or their own device, students must watch a short video clip and answer the associated questions. They may stop, rewind and restart as often as they like during the time frame.
Station 8: Rest Station.
Station 9: Become the question master – Students must create 2 multiple-choice questions, 2 true/false questions and 1 short answer question. Students must also supply the answers.
Explanation – Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion Lesson
This Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion lesson package begins with an overview of the 3 Laws then goes into specifics regarding Newton’s First Law and its applications. The lesson then covers Newton’s Second Law and Newton’s Third Law as well as their Applications.
There are many opportunities for students to test their knowledge through “Check Your Understanding” slides with the teacher version containing the answers (these are generally problem-based questions like they would see on a test or quiz). There are 9 videos and 1 simulation embedded in the PowerPoint. Simply start the slideshow and click the image and it will automatically open in your browser.
