**Product Description**

One and Two-Dimensional Motion – Fully editable and Complete 5E Lesson. By purchasing this bundle you will save 42% vs. purchasing the individual components separately.

**Unit Objectives:**

By the end of this 5E lesson, students will:

– Investigate motion in one and two dimensions

– Be able to read and create graphs depicting motion

– Solve problems involving uniform and non-uniform linear motion in one and two-dimensions

– Use kinematic equations to solve problems related to the horizontal and vertical components of the motion

– Gain an understanding of scalar vs. vector quantities as well as position vs. displacement

– Learn how to solve two-dimensional problems using vectors/components

**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

**Praise For My Reading Comprehension Resources:**

*“I teach middle school science and need to include informational text in my classroom. These readings are great for independent reading for my grade level and upper-level readers. The articles address CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.6-8.1 (Citing specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts.) and CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.6-8.10 (By the end of grade 8, read and comprehend science/technical texts in the grades 6-8 text complexity band independently and proficiently.). The leveled questions allow you to subtly assign the questions to different ability students working in a group.*

*Topics are relevant to the students and current. Graphics draw the students into the article. **I’m going to have one printed and waiting in for my substitute folder too!*

*THANKS!”*

*“Thanks for putting together a wonderful resource.”*

*“I teach Special Education high school science in Maryland in a special school for children with learning disabilities/Autism. I liked the readings and I think students could relate to the topics. I know these are too high a reading level for most of my students and I would read it out loud and highlight the important information together. I would not be able to use the higher order thinking questions (which I like) with these kids. For my high students (very few of these in my school :), I really like these especially how you noted where you got the information which if they were inclined, they could go back to the original source. I like that you have scaffolded the questions and I would only be able to use these with a handful of students, but I think in a regular high school classroom (I spent many years in regular ed) these are spot on. Thank you for sharing.”*

– 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

– The evaluation includes two sets of homework/practice questions

– Each question set comes with a .PDF as well as a video walkthrough which fully explains how to do each question step-by-step

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 – One and Two-Dimensional Motion – 7 Engaging Lab Station Activities**

This fully editable Lab Station on One and Two-Dimensional Motion is meant to get your students 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.

This lab activity covers:

– One-dimensional Motion

– Two-dimensional Motion

– SI Units

– Scalar Quantities

– Average and Instantaneous Speed

– Linear Motion

– Velocity and Other Vector Quantities

– Position and Displacement

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

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.

**Elaborate**

Your students will create a set of directions to a landmark or location of their choosing using a 2D map and vectors. This activity will push your students’ ability to use vectors to create something applicable in their lives.
