The focus of this lesson is to introduce the unit question and anchoring phenomenon. After posing
the unit question, Why are seat belts necessary to wear in moving vehicles? and watching the
video clip, students will be able to research other methods that are used for safety in moving
vehicles. They will record their findings in their science notebooks so they can use them as a
resource later on in the unit. It is important to allow students to research other ways in which we
stay safe in cars so they can begin brainstorming and have more developed prior knowledge to use
when they begin building their models in the next class period. Their models will end up being the
solution to which they apply Newtons Third Law and this lesson will help them develop these
models. Challenges expected with implementation of this lesson include issues with technology, in
which students will have to either share chromebooks, or use computers in another area of school,
such as the school library or computer lab.
