Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Sliding Into Science - Section 3: Explore


In order to keep the students moving through this activity at a productive pace, it is important to know that they will slide and then record their time in their notebook.  I modeled this and then had everyone watch the first student go through their first slide and recording.  

Since the slide times will be short, I made sure to review the < symbol a head of time.  I rounded the times to the nearest second and this allowed for them to record a time that was less than a second without having to use decimals.

Sliding Into Science

Unit 2: Force and Motion
Lesson 5 of 15

Objective: SWBAT understand that a bigger push or pull will increase the objects speed.

Big Idea: The students will use the slide in three ways, no push, self push, and partner push. They will time each slide to see which technique produced the quickest slide.
