Title: Isaac, Inertia, and the NFL
This learning activity will allow students to observe Newton's First Law of Motion as they watch a video clip. While the video plays, the students will define vocabulary associated with the first law and record the information on a foldable (unbalanced force, mass, inertia, and weight). Then, the students will participate in a series of activities that will demonstrate Newton's First Law of Motion. For example, in the activity "Flick a Note Card", students should observe that the coin is at rest on the card, then once a force makes it move, it falls into a cup. The students will explain a series of activities in the middle of the foldable. Finally, the students will share their results and discuss how Newton's First Law relates to their own personal experiences.
This activity was created as a result of the GAP Resource Summit.
