In this unit, students learn about forces (i.e., pushes and pulls) and how they can change the motion of objects. Each day students explore pushes and pulls through a series of engaging hands-on activities. Students frequently collaborate in small groups and participate in centers led by adults. Students work together to solve real-world problems using pushes and pulls. Ultimately, students plan and conduct an investigation to determine the best solution for the given problem: How can we use force to move our teacher across the classroom while she/he is seated in a plastic storage container?
