Forces Vocabulary Fold-Up from All in One Science Notebook
The left side includes a photo from a track student teams designed for a marble. After completing the right side to learn the vocabulary for forces, students go back to the photo on the left side and identify how the vocabulary fits with the activity.
Balanced Forces Activity from Grade 3 NGSS Notebook
The left shows the output from the Marble Coaster. The right side shows an activity on balanced and unbalanced forces done as a whole class. Students fill out the fold-up as output.
Magnetic Force Activity from Experiencing Force
These pages include input and output for a Magnetic Force mini-lab in which student teams measure how close a magnet can be to a paperclip to attract it with and without a piece of cardboard in between the two objects. Then, they draw a picture of the activity to reflect on the activity.
Testable Questions and Hypothesis Fold-Up from All in One Science Notebook
For a day, we take a break from force and motion to work on asking testable questions and writing hypotheses. They need to practice this before starting their friction experiment the next day.
Hypothesis/Not A Hypothesis Sort from All in One Science Notebook
The left side has a sort for students to identify what statements are hypotheses and which are not. The right side has output in which students practice posing testable questions, identifying why they are good questions, and writing hypotheses.
Friction Experiment from Experiencing Force
The left side is a booklet for students to record their work and data for "Does friction affect the distance a toy car will travel?" The right side is student output where students draw a picture of the experiment.
Calculating Speed Fold-Up from All in One Science Notebook
These pages show the input and output for calculating speed (which is used interchangeably with velocity at this grade level). After practicing on the left side, student test two wind-up cars to see how far they go and how long it takes (rounded to the second). Then, they explain how to find velocity in their own words.
