Force and Motion Integrated Unit by Mind Map: Force and Motion Integrated Unit

1. Cross Curricular Integration

1.1. Math

1.1.1. TSW Measure distances traveled based on various variables.

1.2. Writing

1.2.1. TSW will complete science journals throughout the unit explaining different content and situations in the curriculum.

1.3. Technology

1.3.1. TSW interact with website where they will complete various activities and be exposed to texts, songs, videos, interactive sites, and games. They will also utilize technology during the STEM project in order to narrate the ramp and explain the science concepts involved.

1.4. Reading

1.4.1. TSW read various articles and efficiently make connections to content covered in class.
