Newton’s
Laws of
Motion
I. Law of Inertia
II. F=ma
III. Action-Reaction
Newton’s Laws of Motion

1st Law – An object at rest will stay
at rest, and an object in motion will
stay in motion at constant velocity,
unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

2nd Law – Force equals mass times
acceleration (F = ma).

3rd Law – For every action there is an
equal and opposite reaction.
1st Law of Motion
(Law of Inertia)
An object at rest will stay at
rest, and an object in motion
will stay in motion at
constant velocity, unless acted
upon by an unbalanced force.
Objects tend to
resist a change
in motion. This
is called:
Inertia
1st Law (Law of Inertia)

Inertia is the
tendency of
an object to
resist
changes in its
velocity:
whether in
motion or
motionless.
These pumpkins will not move unless acted on
by an unbalanced force.
1st Law

Once airborne,
unless acted on
by an
unbalanced force
(gravity and air
– fluid friction),
it would never
stop!
1st Law

Unless acted
upon by an
unbalanced
force, this golf
ball would sit on
the tee forever.
Why then, do we observe every
day objects in motion slowing
down and becoming motionless
seemingly without an outside
force?
It’s a force we sometimes cannot see –
friction.
Objects on earth, unlike the
frictionless space the moon
travels through, are under the
influence of friction.
What is this unbalanced force that acts on an object in motion?

There are four main types of friction:




Sliding friction: ice skating
Rolling friction: bowling
Fluid friction (air or liquid): air or water resistance
Static friction: initial friction when moving an
object
Slide a book
across a table and
watch it slide to a rest
position. The book
comes to a rest
because of the
presence of a force that force being the
force of friction which brings the book
to a rest position.

In the absence of a force of friction, the book
would continue in motion with the same speed
and direction - forever! (Or at least to the end
of the table top.)
Newtons’s 1st Law and You
Don’t let this be you. Wear seat belts.
Because of inertia, objects (including you) resist changes
in their motion. When the car going 80 km/hour is stopped
by the brick wall, your body keeps moving at 80 m/hour.

Spotlight on: Leonardo da Vinci
Invented the anemometer - a device
used for measuring wind speed, and is a
common weather station instrument.
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was an
Italian Renaissance polymath: painter,
sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician,
engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist,
cartographer, botanist, and writer. Wikipedia
Born: April 15, 1452, Vinci, Italy
Died: May 2, 1519, Amboise, France
Period: High Renaissance
Buried: Chapel of Saint-Hubert

Writing Time!
Being a Writer
Standard W3: Narrative
1:45 – 2:40
It’s time to randomly assign partners for our next task!
(Remember, a task is a job that needs to be
completed.)
Now, get your pencil and pair up!
At the end of the school year you will be
completing a reading and writing assignment
called a performance task. The purpose for this is
to show how well you are developing and growing
Do you remember the personal
narrative and fictional narrative that
you worked on previously?
• Remember another word for narrative is story,
One of the writing tasks you will do at the end of
the year is a narrative. This week we will learn
strategies for doing well on the narrative writing
Narrative Writing
Let’s record your responses to the following
questions on a chart titled:
“What We Have Learned About Narrative Writing”
• What have you learned about good narrative, or
fiction, writing?
• What did you do to make your narrative piece
Does our chart include the following?
What We Have Learned About Narrative Writing
• Begins with an opening that makes the reader want
• Includes interesting characters and events
• Describes the setting of the story
• Has a chronological sequence of events
Let’s be sure to refer
• Sometimes includes dialogue
back to this as we
• Stays focused and makes sense
prepare for our
narrative writing
• Uses sensory details
• Establishes a point of view
• Follows writing rules for spelling, punctuation,
capitalization, and grammar
Performance Task Topic through a map,
video, and eventually a brochure!
topic so you will be able to answer research
questions and write stories about the topic.
• Today, you will learn and then write about some of
the monuments and memorials you might see if
you took an imaginary trip to our nation’s capital,
Washington, D.C.
• The sources will focus on the major monuments
and memorials in an area called the National Mall
and the nearby Tidal Basin.
Monument and Memorial
• Monument – something that is built in
memory of a person or event
• Memorial – something that keeps
memories alive
• A monument is also a type of memorial. The
Washington Monument is a memorial built to
help us remember and honor George
Washington.
First Source – Map of Washington, D.C.
• This map shows the monuments and memorials
of the National Mall and Tidal Basin.
• Let’s look at the “National Mall and Memorial
Parks” chart
First Source – Map of Washington, D.C.
• Now, your turn to look at your own copy of the
map
• Let’s look at the Lincoln Memorial on the west
(left) side of the map.

study continued
• Notice that the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool,
the World War II Memorial, and the Washington
Monument are located to the east (right) of the
Lincoln Memorial.
• Notice the Tidal Basin and the monuments
around it (Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, the
Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, and the
Thomas Jefferson Memorial.)
What questions do you have about the map of
Washington D.C.?
Video Time
• Now, you will watch a video called “Lincoln
Memorial”
• In this video, a ranger shares some of the
thoughts and feelings he had the first time he
visited the Lincoln Memorial, and he also
• I will play the video, but I will be stopping it
three times. At each stop, you will talk with

Video Stop 1
• Stop at 1:27 “…because everything is not right
there in front of you. You have to search for a
few things.”
• What did you learn about the Lincoln
Memorial in the portion you just saw?
Turn and talk!
Video Stop 2
• Stop at 2:50 “It’s almost as if tat open hand is
there to shake the hand of the South.”
• What did you learn about the Lincoln
Memorial in this portion you just saw?
Turn and talk!
Video Stop 3
• Stop at 4:05 “…and it makes perfect sense for
him to be seated upon our American flag.”
• What did you learn about the Lincoln
Memorial in this portion you just saw?
Turn and talk!
Note Taking Time
• We’ll watch the video again, but as a class and in
pairs, you will complete the graphic organizer (notetaking chart), to take notes on what you are learning
• In the left-hand column write Lincoln Memorial and
underline it
• You will list details and descriptions of the memorial
below the name of the memorial or monument.
• In the right-hand column you will write any
thoughts or feelings you might have if you were to
visit the memorial. This will be useful when you
the monuments of Washington, D.C.
We will follow the same procedure as
the first time we watched the video.
Stop 1
• Stop at 1:27 “…because everything is not right
there in front of you. You have to search for a
few things.”
• What did you learn about the Lincoln Memorial
in the portion you just saw?
