Elementary Science:

Motion

Sometimes it feels as if our young students are constantly in motion. The Motion module allows students to study, describe, and measure motion. Students learn that motion can be measured in terms of distance and time. Interactive activities and games allow students to take and compare these measurements of motion. At the end of the module, the “Take a Note” activity allows students to connect to mathematics content as they compare and take several measurements of distance.

For teachers, preparing for the lesson takes little time thanks to the professional development available. The Teacher Lessons provide educators with all the information needed for a productive lesson. Each Teacher Lesson includes student sections followed by a teacher section that offers a summary, best practice, common misconceptions and more.

Within each teacher section, teachers can help enhance the learning experience various ways. For example, in Motion, a common misconception is that movement and motion are the same thing, however, this is not always the case. Some movements such as shivering, shaking your head, or swinging your arms do not result in motion, a change in position.
