What does NASCAR have to do with science? Allow your middle schoolers to discover the answer and learn about Newton's laws of motion through a fun and engaging STEM investigation. Not only do your young scientists get to play with toy cars while learning about physics, but they have a chance to examine potential careers related to the racecar industry. Between the real-world connections and exciting activities, your kiddos will want to share what they've learned with everyone!
Matter and Energy
Does the change in energy of matter lead to a change in mass? Upcoming chemists compare the mass of equal-volume, but different-temperature liquids and materials both before and after a chemical reaction has occurred. In another activity, they examine product labels to find commonly used elements and compounds. They use zinc and sodium hydroxide to change the chemical makeup of a penny. These activities, though pertinent to chemistry, are only slightly related to each other. You may want to use some and not others depending on what concepts you are teaching.
A Moving Experience - Forces and Inertia
Students consider the first part of Newton's First Law of Motion, the Law of Inertia of objects at rest, which states that every object remains at rest unless acted on by a force. They perform hands-on experiments which demonstrate this law.
Fifth graders gather information about the roles, responsibilities, skills, and training and education requirements of workers. Then they input this information into a graphic organizer chart and identify the similarities and differences in the careers.
