  • Introducing Newton's Laws with Learning Cycles

    Posted on November 1, 2002 by Chris Chiaverina

    This exploratory’s emphasis is on the introduction of Newton's 1st, 2nd and 3rd laws. At each station students are asked to perform one or more activities and answer questions based on their observations. These stations use a variety of manipulatives. Some stations feature common household items; others use either commercial devices or teacher-produced apparatus. I would like to share some of our students’ favorite stations with you. During the last 30 years, Dr. James Hicks and I have assembled exploratory activities that we’ve used to introduce each major topic (for example, forces, energy, optics, wave phenomena, electricity, magnetism, etc.)
