3-PS2-2: Predicting Future Motion
Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
Clarification Statement: Examples of motion with a predictable pattern could include a child swinging in a swing, a ball rolling back and forth in a bowl, and two children on a see-saw.
Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include technical terms such as period and frequency.
The following assessments were created by science teachers hoping to better understand the NGSS. In most cases teachers went from standard to assessment in around an hour. These are drafts and should be used accordingly. Feel free to improve these assessments or contribute to the collection. Learn more about assessment design here.
Patterns of motion (e.g. swinging pendulum, ball on curved track, magnet repulsion)
