Transcript of Inquiry and Literacy for Grades 3-5 Science: A Perfect Pair

What happens to the motion of a slider when different forces are applied?
Students investigate how forces speed up, slow down, and change the direction of objects in motion.
Let's play classroom curling!
"Forces are pushes and pulls. Without forces, nothing would move -- everything in our world would be still."

Exploring Forces and Movement
Classroom Curling Overview
Engage Phase
Explore Phase
Play in teams of four.

As you play, think about the following:

What were some of the best techniques for hitting the button?
What did you notice when you were sliding the slider?
What happened when the slider came into contact with a bumper?
1) Changing Direction
- Students test predictions about the path of a slider after it hits a bumper.
- Students draw simple diagrams to show the slider's motion.
2) Changing Force I
- Students investigate the effects of increasing force.
3) Changing Force II
- Students investigate the effects of friction.
- Students use nonfiction text to define friction.
4) Down It Goes
- Students identify gravity as a force.
- Students use nonfiction text to define gravity.

Students apply what they have learned about forces and motion. They also share their understanding in writing.
Explain Phase
NSTA Press, 2012.
Brief overview of research and best practices in inquiry and literacy.
10 classroom-tested units in history and nature of science, life science, earth science, and physical science.
In today's workshop, we'll experience Chapter 9: Classroom Curling.
1) Text-to-self connections during a read-aloud of
Newton and Me




2) Explanatory Report Writing
