Wednesday, 6/8/16- A Day

Learning Objectives:

  • To apply Newton’s third law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner and get out the sketch of your scooter design, the draft of your poster, and any building materials.
  2. Engineering Project– Newton’s Scooters- In this project, you will use Newton’s third law of motion to design and build a vehicle that moves without the use of gravity or a power source such as electricity. Create a prototype of your scooter and a poster presentation.
    • Build your vehicle according to your group’s design.
    • Create a poster that includes:
    • An explanation of how the scooter that you designed demonstrates Newton’s 3rd law of motion
    • A prediction of how your scooter will perform in the demonstration.
