1.2 - Force, Motion, and Energy

The student will investigate and understand that moving objects can move in different ways. Key concepts include

a)  objects may have straight, circular, spinning, and back-and-forth motions; 

  • make and communicate observations about moving objects   Bloom's Level: Knowledge / Understand
  • make and communicate observations about the different ways objects move. Bloom's Level: Understand
  • compare and contrast the movement of two different objects. Bloom's Level: Analyze
  • design a device that uses movement to transfer an object from one location to another. Bloom's Level: Create

b)  objects may vibrate and produce sound.

  •  make and communicate observations of an object with rapid back-and-forth motion (vibration)Bloom's Level:  Understand

  • describe the relationship between vibration and sound. Bloom's Level: Analyze / Understand
  • with guidance, plan and conduct an investigation that addresses the question of whether vibrating objects create sound. Bloom's Level: Apply/Understand

BIG IDEAS

Forces between objects can cause objects to move or have a change in their motion.  

Sound can be produced when objects vibrate.

UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD

  • Forces between objects can cause a change in motion.
  • Objects may move in straight, circular, spinning (rotational) and back - and - forth motions.
  • One kind of back-and-forth motion is vibration. An object's vibrations may create sound.
  • Sound can make matter vibrate, and vibrating matter can make sound.


ESSENTIALS

Essential Questions:

 How can we make objects move in different ways?

 Why do moving objects sometimes change direction?

 How can vibration create sound?

In order to meet this standard, it is expected that students will

  • make and communicate observations about the different ways objects move. 
  • compare and contrast the movement of two different objects.
  • predict an object’s movement, using its size, shape, and the force of the push or pull on it.
  • manipulate objects in order to describe and classify the motion of each object as straight, circular, or back-and-forth.
  • devise a device that uses movement to transfer an object from one location to another.
  • make and communicate observations of an object with rapid back-and-forth motion (vibration)
  • describe the relationship between vibration and sound.
  • investigate the question, "Do vibrating objects create sound?"
