Forces of the Winter Olympics
Project the site www.olympic.org/sports for students to view the list of Winter Olympic sports. Ask students to examine the list and think about how the athletes move during those events. Ask students to pick a sport from the list and turn to their neighbor and talk about the forces and motions that occur in their chosen sport.
2 Direct Instruction
Review the terms push, pull, straight, circular, and back and forth. Have students stand and act out each force and motion.
3 Guided Practice
4 Independent Practice
Students, independently or with a partner, complete the remaining frames of their Pic Collage.
Students who complete the labeling early can write a complete sentence describing the force in each picture. When the Pic Collage is complete students save it to the iPad Photo Library and upload it to Dropbox for future access by the teacher.
