Grade 3. In 15 lessons over 19 class sessions, students explore how objects can exert forces on other objects and predict an object's future motion based on observations of patterns of motion. As a final science challenge, students plan and carry out an investigation to answer a question about how magnets affect the pattern of motion of a steel pendulum. They use their data to predict the future motion of their swing and write a claim that answers their question. Module materials are available as a 1-use module (item #517001), 1-use refurbishment set (item #517004), 3-use module (item #517001U3), 3-use refurbishment set (item #517004U3), student activity guide (item #517003 or #517003SP), student reader (item #517005, #517005A, #517006, #517006A, or #517005ASP), and Spanish components bundle (item #517025).
