Mississippi College & Career Readiness Standards
MS.P.5. GRADE FIVE: Physical Science
Motions, Forces, and Energy
P.5.6. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the factors that affect the motion of an object through a study of Newton's Laws of Motion.
P.5.6.2. Predict the future motion of various objects based on past observation and measurement of position, direction, and speed.
P.5.6.3. Develop and use models to explain how the amount or type of force, both contact and non-contact, affects the motion of an object.
P.5.6.4. Plan and conduct scientific investigations to test the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the speed and/or direction of objects in motion.
P.5.6.5. Predict how a change of force, mass, and/or friction affects the motion of an object to convert potential energy into kinetic energy.
