Force and MotionFree
Types of forces and their effect on things
Surely you´ve often heard the words force and motion, but do you know what they are and how they work? Through a variety of materials including games and dynamic activities, students will discover and understand what is a force, its relation to energy, the different types of forces and how they affect the motion and shape of objects.
The proposed activities help develop cognitive, manual and creative skills and encourage the learning-based reasoning and experimentation, which directly involves the student in the acquisition of new knowledge.

Led by Elesapiens, this unit ...
- Develops the concepts of forces and motion of bodies.
- Introduces and reviews the contact and distance forces such as friction, voltage, resistance, gravity, magnetism ...
- Presents and explains Newton's three laws of classical dynamics on the motion of bodies
- Helps strengthen the knowledge gained in a practical way through different games and fun and dynamic activities
- Is transversely related with content from other learning units
- Contains activities that can be done individually and in groups, encouraging students;to work with different techniques and use various resources and materials
- Encourages observation, analysis and critical thinking of students
- Promotes fellowship and collaboration among all members of the classroom through diverse activities and respectful communication
- Motivates students as they learn in a dynamic and fun way
