Energy, Motion, and Forces

Our fourth and fifth grade students have been very busy adjusting to some new routines and new faces in the intermediate grades. We launched our first STEM unit on energy, motion, and forces during the first week of school, and we’ve been impressed with our students’ effort, good collaborative skills, and engagement. Thus far students have explored energy transfer,motion, and forces using pennies, marble collisions, ball dropping experiments, rubber band cars. Mathematics have been infused in each lesson, especially metric measurement. Students used iPads to capture motion and used the camera tools to do some slow motion analysis.
