STEMonstrations: Newton's Third Law of MotionLesson Planet
3 mins 3rd - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
New ReviewHow do the laws of physics work in microgravity? Astronaut Mark Vande Hei explores Newton's third law of motion as part of the "STEM on Station" series. Learners then explore Newton's third law further by building rocket racers and...
Christa's Lost Lesson: Newton’s LawsLesson Planet
6th - 8th
New ReviewHow do the laws of motion work in space? Learners explore Newton's laws of motion in different experiments as part of the Christa's Lost Lessons series. They rotate around the room in three stations to experience each law in action using...
How Dry am I? Exploring Biomimicry and NanotechnologyLesson Planet
6th - 8th
Help your classes feel like they can walk on water! An engaging inquiry-based lesson has young scholars experiment with different surface coatings. They make observations about their properties and how they relate to the surface tension...
An Easy (Bake) Approach to an Edible NanoLabLesson Planet
6th - 8th
You can make it if you bake it! Young scientists model electronic chip fabrication with an easy bake oven. They create a design to embed in their brownie "chips" and compare their models to wafer production in basic nanotechnology.
Equal and Opposite Thrust in Aircraft: You're a Pushover!Lesson Planet
7th - 9th CCSS: Designed
It's the law—every action requires a reaction, no matter how small. Pupils experience two demonstrations of Newton's third law of motion as it relates to thrust in the 10th segment of a 22-part unit on flight. Using their mathematical...
Blade Runners—Science of the Winter OlympicsLesson Planet
4 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Race to learn the insight of Sir Isaac Newton. A helpful video uses speed skating to explain Newton's laws of motion. Force, acceleration, mass, and momentum all work together to make a successful speed skating race.
Jetpack Rocket ScienceLesson Planet
9 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Fly high using the force of water. A segment of the Veritasium playlist applies the Newton's Laws of Motion via a jetpack. Using a CO2 fire extinguisher, the video demonstrates the idea of Newton's second law, without enough mass. While...
Third Law SimulationLesson Planet
6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Keep calm and use the force! Joey pulls a cart and scholars adjust the force required to control the movement. Through simulating different scenarios, participants learn about Newton's Third Law. It includes analysis questions throughout...
Freestanding StructuresLesson Planet
3rd - 8th CCSS: Designed
How high can you go? In a STEM design challenge, teams design and build a structure using only dowel rods and rubber bands. The goal is to build the tallest freestanding structure using all of the dowel rods. Teams present their designs...
