Standard(s) Taught

SC.6.P.12.1 Measure and graph distance versus time for an object moving at a constant speed. Interpret this relationship.

SC.6.P.13.1 Investigate and describe types of forces including contact forces and forces acting at a distance, such as electrical, magnetic, and gravitational.

SC.6.P.13.2 Explore the Law of Gravity by recognizing that every object exerts gravitational force on every other object and that the force depends on how much mass the objects have and how far apart they are.

SC.6.P.13.3 Investigate and describe that an unbalanced force acting on an object changes its speed, or direction of motion, or both.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:

• measure and graph distance versus time for an object moving at a constant speed

• analyze and interpret graphs and data tables of distance and time for an object moving at a constant speed

Review:

• investigate and describe types of forces, including:

            o Forces at a distance: electrical, magnetic, and gravitational

            o Contact forces: normal, applied, friction

• explore the Law of Gravity by recognizing that every object exerts gravitational force on every other object and that force depends on how much mass the objects have and how far apart they are

• investigate and explain how an unbalanced force acting on an object changes its speed or direction of motion (or both)

Classroom Activities

Walking Dead Lab- Students will act as zombies, and walk at different speeds.  In groups, students will create distance-time graphs. As a class, we will interpret and discuss the graphs produced.

DIA Review.  DIA Force and Motion will be Monday and Tuesday(October 29th and 30th)

Assignments Due

Study guide going home Thursday and Friday.
