Catchy, positive title- We Can Be On-Task to Win the Race!!!
Undesirable Behavior Targeted: Students exhibit off- task behavior that is inhibiting their learning or their peers.
Students out of desk frequently- decreases amount of time student working productively
Off topic discussions- lead focus away from curriculum or educational discussions
Students talking to each other socially students miss educational instruction and information)
Sidetracked by other activities- students misses valuable time learning and distracts other students around them
Desirable (expected) Behavior Targeted: Students are seated in their seats, participating and contributing to
classroom discussions. Students are keeping their eyes and ears on whomever is speaking and focused on current
lesson or discussion.
Types of positive reinforcements - Reinforced – when & how?
1. Immediate R+ Paper cutouts that are a picture of a can.
2. Ongoing R+ Paper cans earned by students are placed inside the recycling trash can on the classroom bulletin
3. Overall R+ - Motion, Energy and Force. Vroom Vroom!
4. Students with On-Task behavior are given a paper cutout of a can (typical metal food can) to give positive
reinforcement for their desirable behavior. These can be passed out discretely when a student is working diligently
on their work or in front of the whole class when a student exhibits on-task behavior. Acknowledging the positive
behavior in front of the whole class can also help to motivate other students. Those paper cans will be placed inside
the recycling bin on the class bulletin board. It takes 40 paper cans to fill the trash can. Once the trash can is filled,
the cans are “recycled into” a toy car. Students must earn 5 toy cars (200 paper cans) to achieve the interactive
learning activity.
Interactive Learning Activity: Motion, Energy and Force. Vroom Vroom! (Chanted like “Lions, Tigers and
Bears, Oh My”). Students will be separated into five groups and each given one of the earned toy cars (Matchbox
car size). They will all be the same model and size. Each group will be given pre-made ramps made from pool
noodles cut in half. Students will predict if the cars will race down their tracks faster with various slopes. They will
also evaluate how the slope of the ramp changes the distance the car will travel after leaving the ramp. At the end
activity, groups can race their cars and also construct longer tracks with extra pool noodles.
learn about basic elements of force, motion and energy. Then students will work in the
TEKS: Science 2.6C Force, Motion and Energy (trace changes in positon, car rolling down a ramp)
Science 2.6D Force, Motion and Energy (Compare patterns of movement)
Explain HOW you will Teach the Desired Behaviors: A large classroom poster with all of the desired behaviors
will be presented. Then the teacher will explain each desired behavior and then model what the negative
counterpart looks like. Then she will ask for one student to show what the desired behavior looks like, then the
whole class will model that behavior together.
Explain HOW you will Teach the Plan:
Teacher will explain that when students exhibit the positive behavior they can earn a can. Just because they are
exhibiting the behavior does not mean you will get a can. Students can not ask for a can either, if they ask for one
then they will not receive one. Students can place their cans in the recycling bin on the way to lunch and at the end
of the day.
Provide options
The same plan can be used at the secondary level. The activity can be modified to be more difficult by going more
in depth with physics components. Would provide secondary students will scientific equipment to record data and
have them create graphs and charts to clearly show their results. This CBP can be used again for multiple subject
areas. Instead of having cars race in the activity, students could have a relay race. They could incorporate other
subjects by having relay sticks be a car and students have to run cardinal directions when they are called out by the
Demonstrate all Necessary Items-Bulletin board, poster board, paper cans, 5 toy cars, 10 pool noodles cut in half
Lengthwise and duct tape.
