Class Experience

By the end of the lesson students will be able to describe and give examples of the following forces: gravity, friction, and contact.  We will discuss the idea of net force and the difference between balanced and unbalanced forces.
I have been a public school teacher for 10 years and have taught this topic to both middle school and elementary aged students.
All assignments will be done inside of the class meeting.
Students will need a deck of cards...any kind of playing cards will work :)
The learner's progress is assessed using formative assessments including probing questions and demonstrations by the student.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
