Recently, second grade students had the opportunity to spend time with Danielle Sampliner, and Outreach Educator from the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, to take part in a hands-on demonstration that re-enforced Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion.
Students talked about and participated in fun experiments that increased their understanding of Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion. This workshop supports the Common Core Science Standards of second grade, Physical Science – Changes in Motion.
Our second graders worked on the following:
Newton’s Second Law of Motion: Acceleration of an object is directly related to the force of an object and inversely related tot the mass of the object. (F=ma).
Newton’s Third Law of Motion: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
The funding for this program, “Forces and Motion: Accelerate Your Mass of Students!” as part of their”Science-to-Go!” program came from the Community Foundation of Lorain County. Students are encouraged to visit the Cleveland Museum of Natural History at: http://cmnh.org/site/Index.aspx
