Do you need differentiated newton’s laws of motion stations activities for your forces and motion? Perfect for a middle school physical science class studying properties of matter, pure substances and mixtures, this resource will help you reach and assess your students in a multitude of ways. This resource includes 7 stations with minimal prep involved. There is a printable version, editable PowerPoint version and a Digital Google Slides™ version that will help you save on time and paper!
The 7 types of stations include:
1. Discover – Students will research information about Newton’s Laws and how astronauts experience each of them in microgravity.
2. Observe – Students will push an empty cart and then push a cart full of heavy objects to explain Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion.
3. Experiment – Students will perform a mini experiment in which they use a balloon, straw and tape to demonstrate Newton’s 3rd Law.
4. Write – Students will explain their answers in 2-3 sentences.
5. Create – Students will draw an example of each of Newton’s Laws of Motion and explain it.
6. Sort – Students will sort scenarios to match the appropriate law of motion.
7. Quiz – Students will answer a mix of 8 true/false, multiple choice and short answer questions.
*Each station should take students between 8-10 minutes to complete.*
The RESOURCE includes:
- Digital Google Slides™ link to perform stations online.
- Printable version of stations in color and black/white
- Editable PowerPoint version of stations.
⭐ Newton’s 1st Law of Motion
