### Grade 5 Science Instructional Guide Exemplar Lesson

1. 1. July 2008 Force, Motion, and Energy (FME) To scroll through the document, hold down the left click and drag the mouse, or use the scroll bar on the right side. To activate a link, hold ’Ctrl’ and click on the link. A new window will open. OVERVIEW FOR LESSON 1 A Force Is a Push or Pull Students observe objects in motion and complete a KWL based on their prior knowledge of forces and motion. Through guided discussion of teacher demonstrations, students begin to recognize that a force is a push or pull, and that an unbalanced force is necessary for any changes in motion to occur. Enduring Understandings An object’s motion is described using distance, time, direction, and speed. Changes in mass and force affect an object’s motion. Essential Questions How do we describe an object’s change in motion? What causes an object to change its motion? Indicator Guiding Instruction Standards Based Curriculum Development 5.5. A.2 Explain that the changes in the motion of objects are determined by the mass of an object and the amount (size) of the force applied to it. Resources Supporting Instruction Imbedded Professional Development (PD) DE streaming video segment Making Things Move (2:51) Web site http://physics.about.com/od/physics101thebasics/u/basicconcepts.htm provides general content support for teachers. What is motion? Science Closer Look (SCL), pp. 380–381. Students read the same section later. Science Closer Look: English Language Learner Teacher’s Guide (ELG), pp. 118–121 Preparation Make a giant pendulum by hanging a string from the ceiling where all students can observe it. Tie a large paper clip to the end and hang one large washer on the paper clip. Clear a path for the swings. This pendulum will be used throughout the unit. Gather materials to demonstrate the three types of motion. See Notes to Support Teacher Background Content Knowledge (NOTES) at end of lesson. Cue the DE streaming video segment. Prepare Force, Motion, and Energy KWL on chart paper or overhead with the column titles: I Think I Know, I Want to Know, and I Learned. Students will need a journal or section in a notebook to record notes and organize worksheets. Grade 5 ● DRAFT ● ©2008 MCPS Science 11
