———————————————————————————————-

Science Inquiry: This week, students will begin an inquiry into Force and Motion. Students will rotate through various stations for hands-on exploration into the effects of force on the movement of an object. Students will reflect on their findings and relate back to the central idea, “Relationships impact outcomes.”

Students will:

S2P2: Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to explain the effect of a force (a push or a pull) in the movement of an object (changes in speed and direction).
