Physical Education: Newton's Laws of Motion

Subject Area

Physical Education




This lesson will introduce students to an important scientific principle that affects movement. Class discussion followed by teacher designed learning stations will allow students the opportunity to identify and use Newton’s Laws of Motion in physical activities.  Through question/answer sessions, the teacher will help students make purposeful connections between science and human movement.  After each station, students will complete a worksheet by answering basic recall questions in addition to higher-order thinking questions.  The teacher will also check for understanding by asking questions during station participation and posing questions at the conclusion of the lesson.
