Title: Slidea-ma-Zoo | The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!
Description:

Introduce your children to the concepts of physical science, specifically motion and stability: forces and interactions with this game from The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! Nick and Sally are testing out the newest slides in Frictionarium. By changing a slide's height and texture, kids will engage in cause and effect as they race with Thing 1 and Thing 2.

Subject: English Language Arts (3), Science (3)
Title: Motion!

Description:

Beware of squirrels! Experience the science of force and motion while learning that an author’s reason to write is either to inform or entertain the reader. In this interactive lesson, write a motion story and use motion words as you practice reading with a nutty squirrel.

Subject: Science (K - 3)
Title: Force & Motion StudyJam
URL: https://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/science/forces-and-motion/force-and-motion.htm
Description:

Anytime there is a change in motion, force is the responsible party. It has to overcome inertia to act on an object. Inertia keeps an object either sitting still or moving at a constant speed.

The classroom resource provides a video that will introduce the concepts of force, motion, and inertia. This resource can provide background information for students before they conduct their own investigations. There is also a short test that can be used to assess students' understanding.

Title: Falling for Gravity!

Description:

May the force be with you as you learn about using text features (like captions, bold print, subheadings, icons, and glossaries) to find facts about the force known as gravity! A big silly walrus will travel with you through this lesson.

Subject: Science (K - 3)
Title: Hamster Run - Game | The Ruff Ruffman Show
URL: https://aptv.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ruffruffman-sci-hamsterrun/hamster-run/
Description:

Use this game from The Ruff Ruffman Show to help children learn motion and stability: forces and interactions through physical science. Use the engineering design process to build, test, and redesign structures to help the hungry hamsters reach their food.

This resource is part of The Ruff Ruffman Show Science Collection.

Subject: English Language Arts (3), Science (3)
Title: Friction Circus!
URL: https://aptv.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/reach-with-stem-friction-circus/friction-circus/
Description:

In this interactive lesson, students will learn that life without friction is a 3-ring circus and an accident waiting to happen. A circus dog with lots of tricks will help you learn about compare and contrast, cause and effect, and the importance of friction.

Subject: Science (3)
Title: Gearing Up With Robots

Description:

In this activity, students experiment with gear motion to understand how gears work to change the amount of force, speed, or direction of motion in machines.
