Force & Motion: 7th Grade Science Links
Forces and Motion Benchmark
Here are links to 300 sites which provide information on force and motion
along with an American Association for the Advancement of Science benchmark.
Newtons Laws on Motion
An interactive site which covers Newtons three laws.
Force and Inertia
This site gives a thorough discussion of inertia, including real world
examples, and information about Newton.
The Book of Phyz: Motion and Inertia
This site offers several handouts and worksheets on motion and inertia, as
well as labs, demos, and some videos. NOTE: videos must be downloaded for viewing.
Physics in Sports: Newton's 1st Law
Learn about three of Newton's laws of motion on these examples of sports
games. Includes video files.
Nye: The Science Guy
This site has many options to get to topics on Physical Science. Pick "Home
Demos" and then "Physical Science."
Laws of Motion and Meteorites
In this experiment, students apply the laws of motion and gravity to the
space ships and jet engines.
Inertia and Balance
In this simple experiment, students will investigate principles of inertia.
Fear of Physics: Friction
This interactive simulation helps beginners visualize and understand
friction. Select different automobiles, speeds, and road conditions and see how friction comes into play.
This site contains about 20 different physics simulations. Experiment with
different variables and see how the simulation reacts. A great way for children to learn the basics of movement and force.
What are the forces involved when a skater performs an "ollie?" Read this and find out.
