School: Shepardson STEM Grade Level: 2nd Content Area: Science

Title: So you want to be a scientist? Lesson #: 6 of 6

Content Standard(s) addressed by this lesson: (Write Content Standards directly from the standard)

Standard 1: Physical Science

Changes in speed or direction of motion are caused by forces such as pushes and pulls

Understandings: (Big Ideas)

- Forces can be a push or pull

- Force affects motions in 4 ways (start &stop motion, change direction & speed)

Inquiry Questions: (Essential questions relating knowledge at end of the unit of instruction, select
applicable questions from standard)

- What are the two types of forces?

- How does applying a force affect the way an object moves?

Evidence Outcomes: (Learning Targets)

While watching the presentations, the students will be able to identify pushes and pulls and how force
affected motion in each of the five demonstrations.

I can: recognize pushes and pulls and the ways force affects motion

This means: I understand that force and motion happen everywhere and they happen in predictable

List of Assessments: (Write the number of the learning target associated with each assessment)

- Worksheet to identify pushes and pulls and ways of motion

Post Lesson Reflection

1. To what extent were lesson objectives achieved? (Utilize assessment data to justify
your level of achievement)

- The students identified many ways in each experiment how force affected motion. I was
expecting them to choose just one way that force affected motion, but almost all of the
students circled more than one way they saw force affect motion. Sometimes, there
were answers circled that were not correct.

- The most common incorrectly circled answer was pulls.

- There were a few students who did not fill out all of the sections. For example, Ea did
not fill in any of the ways force affects motion for any of the experiments. Other
students sometimes just missed filling out the push or pull question for 1 group.

2. What changes, omissions, or additions to the lesson would you make if you were to
teach again?

- I would add pictures to the worksheet that would help direct students and break up the
text some.

- I would maybe add a section on the worksheet to explain why they circled push or pull
or how force affected motion because when I read them, I can see where an answer
they circled could be explained correctly but I do not know if they intended that
explanation when they circled it.

3. What do you envision for the next lesson? (Continued practice, reteach content, etc.)
- This was the end of the unit. The students displayed the understood the concepts
required by the standard. Maybe checking in throughout the year could help reinforce
learning. I think pulls would need to be taught more. I am realizing now that most of our
lessons showcased pushes.
