Grade Level: Second Grade
§112.13. Science, Grade 2, Beginning with School Year 2010-2011.
(6) Force, motion, and energy. The student knows that forces cause change and energy exists in many forms. The student is expected to:
(C) trace the changes in the position of an object over time such as a cup rolling on the floor and a car rolling down a ramp; and
(D) compare patterns of movement of objects such as sliding, rolling, and spinning.
The goal of the learning kit activity is to engage families and reinforce concepts taught in class. The student will take the “learning kit” home and reinforce on their knowledge of force and motion. The caregiver will help the student complete the activity. In the learning kit, the students will test a variety of objects and determine if the object rolls, slides, or spins. Once the students have determined the pattern movement of the object, the student will observe and record the object’s movement overtime. The student will return the learning kit to the teacher. Then the teacher will give the learning kit to another student to take it home.
