UDL Principles: Student choice of a tool provides for multiple means of engagement and multiple means of expression.

Assessment: Given a set of scenarios, students will identify the simple machine that is most appropriate for the specified purpose. Multiple scenarios will be given for each simple machine. Students may identify at least one scenario for each simple machine. They may choose to stop at six scenarios, or they may choose to match more of the scenarios to the appropriate simple machine.

UDL Principles: The simple machines will be represented with text and pictures to provide for multiple means of presentation. Multiple means of engagement are provided through allowing students to select which scenarios to answer.

Force Video Directions:

Role: Yourself

Audience: Classmates

Format: Video

Topic: With your small group, you will create a video showing the effect of force on an object. First, you will choose two similar objects of different sizes (e.g., a tennis ball and a basketball, a small and large toy car, etc.). You will use these objects to show the five effects of force on an object. You will also demonstrate how the amount of force needed is different for different-sized objects. You must include narration to explain the effect of force in each scene.

Grading Checklist: Criteria 3 Clear and Correct 2 Confusing 1 Incorrect or Not Included

Force can cause an object to start moving. Force can cause an object to speed up. Force can cause an object to slow down. Force can cause an object to stop moving. Force can cause an object to change direction. Explanation of greater force included where appropriate. Objects with more mass require more force to move the same distance at the same speed.

Part VI: Content Sequencing and Instructional Strategies

Instructional Sequence Sequence 1 2 3 Description To predict the effect of a force on an object To demonstrate the effect of gravitational force on an object To select the best simple machine for a specified purpose Objective 2 3 1

This is a concept-based sequence guided by logical prerequisites (Morrision, Ross, Kemp & Kalman, 2013). The student should understand force before they learn about gravity, a specific force. Likewise, understanding gravity and other forces should come before simple machines, which help overcome forces or lessen the amount of force needed.

Lesson 1: Force Terminal Objective 2: To predict the effect of a force on an object Enabling Objectives: 2A. To explain the five effects of a force on an object 2B. To describe the relationship between the size of an object and the effects of force 2C. To describe the effect on an object of a force greater than the initial force

Initial Presentation: Students will view a narrated presentation. The presentation will show objects of different sizes being acted on by an outside force. After each example, the related principle will be explained (e.g., more force is required to move a larger object). A mnemonic will be suggested to help students remember the five effects of force on an object (start moving, speed up, slow down, stop moving, change direction). Students will be directed to rehearse the mnemonic (Morrision, Ross, Kemp & Kalman, 2013). Multiple means of presentation are provided because the information is both visual and auditory. The mnemonic also fits within this category (CAST, 2011).

Generative Strategy: The learner will be presented a picture or video of an object and told in what way a force will act on the object. The learner must predict the effect of that force on the

object. Knowledge-of-correct-response feedback will be given (Morrision, Ross, Kemp & Kalman, 2013). All information and questions will be presented in text and audio to provide multiple means of presentation (CAST, 2011).

Lesson 2: Gravity Terminal Objective 3: To demonstrate the effect of gravitational force on an object Enabling Objectives: 3A. To define gravitational force 3B. To identify the effect of gravitational force on an object

Initial Presentation: Students will watch a video explaining the definition of gravity and how gravitational force affects objects (Morrision, Ross, Kemp & Kalman, 2013). Students will also read the section about gravity in the online textbook, providing multiple means of presentation (CAST, 2011).

Generative Strategy: Students may choose to write a discussion post or use drawing software to create a diagram explaining the effect of gravity on an object (Morrision, Ross, Kemp & Kalman, 2013). Giving the choice between drawing and creating a diagram provides multiple means of expression (CAST, 2011).

Lesson 3: Simple Machines Terminal Objective 1: To select the best simple machine for a specified purpose Enabling Objectives: 1A. To identify the six simple machines 1B. To describe the uses of the six simple machines

Motivational Strategy: As part of the presentation, students will view a video of a Rube Goldberg machine, which is made up of many simple machines. After reviewing the presentation, they will watch the video again and be encouraged to find as many simple machines as possible. Example answers will be provided after the video. Identifying simple machines in the video will recruit interest, providing for multiple means of engagement (CAST, 2011).

Initial Presentation: Students will view a presentation that names and defines each of the six simple machines. A best example will be given of each simple machine (Morrision, Ross, Kemp & Kalman, 2013). Instead of or in addition to viewing the presentation, students may choose to view a video about each of the simple machines, providing multiple means of presentation (CAST, 2011).

Generative Strategy: Students will be provided with a table that has a column for each simple machine and a list of the names and pictures of different simple machines. Knowledge-of-result feedback will be provided. Students will be allowed to revise their answers until they achieve 85% correct. At this point, they may choose whether or not to continue practice to achieve a higher percentage correct (Morrision, Ross, Kemp & Kalman, 2013).

Initial Presentation: Students will complete a game where they identify simple machines. After each simple machine is identified, students will be asked to identify how the simple machine works, based on real-life examples (Morrision, Ross, Kemp & Kalman, 2013). Multiple attempts to answer and elaborated feedback will be provided. All text will also be read by the program (CAST, 2011).

Generative Strategy: Students will create a discussion post paraphrasing the uses of the six simple machines and giving an example of when each one would be used (Morrision, Ross, Kemp & Kalman, 2013). Students may also record their responses with voice recording software. Allowing students to record themselves speaking instead of writing provides for multiple means of expression (CAST, 2011).
