Use this fourth grade force, energy, and motion assessment as a quiz, test, or for review! This assessment matches Virginia's Standards of Learning, SOL 4.2 completely. Answer sheets included!Vocabulary covered include: friction, heat, motion, inertia, speed, force, energy, gravity, potential energy, kinetic energy, mechanical energy, heat energy, chemical energy, solar energy, gravitational energy, and Isaac Newton.
Wacky Physics: The Coolest Little Particles in Nature
The field of quantum mechanics all fundamental forces are carried by particles. For instance, light is made up of massless particles called photons that carry the electromagnetic force. Likewise, the graviton is the theoretical particle that would carry the force of gravity. Scientists have yet to detect gravitons, which are tricky to find because they interact so weakly with matter.
Love this interactive science site! My 3rd and 6th grader have learned about everything from the parts of a flower, to electrical currents and melting points. The games are really engaging; this has been a great supplement to our homeschooling.
Plastic Easter Egg Races for Exploring Easter Science with Kids
FREE!!! Engage your students with this Around the Room Force and Motion Circuit Activity. This activity contains 21 questions and answers. Circuits are great for review and rotations to get your students up and moving! Topics included are: -Calculating Speed, Force, and Work -Balanced, Unbalanced, and Net Forces -Velocity and Acceleration -Newton's Laws of Motion -Inertia, Gravity and Friction -Speed vs.
Newton thought it was instantaneous, but the story is much richer than that! > “The fact that gravitational damping is measured at all is a strong indication that the propagation speed of gravity is not infinite. If the calculational framework of general relativity is accepted, the damping can be used to calculate the speed, and the actual measurement confirms that the speed of gravity is equal to the speed of light to within 1%.” - Steve Carlip If you looked out at the Sun across the 93…
