Science Lesson 1: Balanced vs. Unbalanced Forces

Hello Scientists! You will get a chance to conduct an experiment or investigation to explore Balanced versus Unbalanced Forces. Do these steps: 1. Question: Ask yourself these questions (don't answer yet, just predict and think): -How can I provide or show evidence of Balanced Forces? -How can I provide or show evidence of Unbalanced Forces? 2. Study: Study the images in this activity and listen to the voice recording to learn about Balanced vs. Unbalanced Forces 3. Plan: Plan an activity to show Balanced Forces versus Unbalanced Forces and use these examples for help: -Balanced Forces: either by yourself or with another person both of you push against different objects in opposite directions, like you push on one side and someone pushes on the other against you to show no motion -Unbalanced Forces: have only 1 person (could be yourself) push against different objects to show the objects in motion 4. Conduct and Share the Results of the Experiment: You can do the experiment and share what you learned with the class by telling us about it during our morning meeting or other whole class time, taking a photo, or recording a video
