|This sheet is full of I can statements. It is a great tool for the student to be accountable for their learning. They can check off each element as they accomplish it. They can also set goals as to what they need to learn before this unit is complete. Kids will learn to reflect more on their learning. The goals for this unit are as follows.|
1 I can identify various push and pulls as a force and name many real life situations where force is used. 2 I can identify what friction is and provide examples of how friction works. 3 I can identify when friction can be helpful and when it can be a problem. 4 I can identify situations/examples of when a force is balanced and when it is unbalanced. 5 I can explain how force changes speed and direction. 6 I can make reasonable predictions about the direction that objects will move.
7 I can show how greater forces cause objects to go farther. 8 I can explain how magnets work and I can predict what is attracted to a magnet and what is not. 9 I can explain what will happen when two objects contact each other with force. 10 I can explain the cause and e?ect relationship based on a variety of forces.
