3rd Grade – FORCE: Forces and Interactions
The 3rd Grade Physical Science Kit will focus attention and experimentation on forces and how they are used around us. In module one, students will see balanced and unbalanced forces in action as they try their hand at a tug of war simulation and attempt to predict the outcome. Patterns of motion is the focus of module two and students will learn they can predict and repeat the direction an object travels by making a plan and using the correct force. The kit winds to a close with module three and the power of magnetic and static forces. Through experimenting with various objects, students will observe and note how magnets work.
