Forces and Changes in Motion

 

BIG IDEAS for 5th Grade

A. It takes energy to change the motion of objects.

B. Energy change is understood in terms of forces, pushes or pulls.

C. Some forces act through physical contact, while others act at a distance.

 

Benchmark Number
SC.5.P.13.1

Description
Identify familiar forces that cause objects to move,
such as pushes or pulls,
including gravity acting on falling objects

Forces In Action
 

Pendulum
 

Benchmark Number:
SC.5.P.13.2


Description
Investigate and describe that the greater the force applied to it,
the greater the change in motion of a given object.

Moon Lander

Bouncing Ball
 

Benchmark Number
SC.5.P.13.3

Description
Investigate and describe that the more mass an object has,
the less effect a given force will have on the object's motion.

Simulation
 

Benchmark Number
SC.5.P.13.4

Description
Investigate and explain that when a force is applied to an object
but it does not move,
it is because another opposing force is being applied
by something in the environment
so that the forces are balanced.
