Prod%ct The product development capabilities they must require is an understanding of #ewton$s aws and the basic terms such as force and velocity in connection with real life e'amples. That is why we chose an amusement park pro+ect as most middle school students associate themselves with that

The students will need to The students will need to master The skills required would be a demonstrate understanding of the different changes in direction, thorough understanding of the different terms from the kinetic position as well as velocity in different concepts they will have and potential energy topics from association with an activity. (ur to know by the end of the three both the grade 6 as well as the lesson will be focused on days. They are required to be grade 8 level. The key words they amusement park rides& able to connect the terms with should acquire from the 3 day specifically, building and testing everyday life so they can truly lesson will be: force, velocity, out a rollercoaster track. )tudents understand the terms*equations energy, the aw of !onservation will be required to identify different rather than +ust memori,e them. of "nergy and #ewton$s aws. forces and types of energy while That is why we chose to have They should also be able to testing out their roller coasters them connect the concepts to a understand the differences using marbles. sport activity so that the between kinetic and potential understanding goes beyond the energy. %nowing the definitions classroom. The skills they require as well as how to apply them are using technological gadgets using formulas should not be the such as smart board as we will be only knowledge the students need using it to accommodate all types to demonstrate& they should also of learners. -e will also be using be able to take the terms and a concept map so we can make connect them to their everyday sure they understand all the lives, for e'ample: sports, driving required terms and can connect a car, rides at amusement parks them and so on.
