Reflection: Data Analysis What Caused that Change in Motion? - Section 4: Wrap Up


This was a very visual lesson. The students enjoyed watching the video and analyzing the changes in motion that occurred with the ball. Having the students analyze the change in motion helped the students to identify what causes changes in motion. The changes that were observed encouraged students to use the previously learned positional words as well as "push and pull." Students really liked changing the ball's motion on the interactive resource TinkerBall.
