The Effects of Forces on Objects

The Effects of Forces on Objects

Grade 3 - Forces and Interactions

In this Storyline, students develop an understanding of how equal and unequal forces affect the motion of objects and that some forces, including gravity and magnetism, can act on objects without coming into contact with them. Using this property and the other unique properties of magnets, students define a problem that can be solved using magnets.
