My students need scooters for the Newton's Laws unit. Students will use scooters to do hands-on experiments where they find their speed and acceleration.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My science classroom is a safe, fun, engaging learning experience for all students. I believe all students can learn and I challenge myself to find the most creative ways to achieve the highest levels of learning.
Teague ISD is a small 2A school with a wide variety of demographics.
We have a high level of economically disadvantaged students, but our kids always do their best no matter what the circumstances they face. Teague students are honest, ask good questions, and have a high work ethic.
Students will use the scooters to complete the unit on Newton's Laws of Motion during the first semester of 8th grad science. Students will physically find their speed and acceleration on the scooter. After calculating speed and acceleration this data will be graphed into speed and acceleration graphs.
Students learn when they are actively engaged.
This project will allow my students to be an active part of their learning and apply it to a real world experience. State laws require a minimum of 40 percent of class be spent in a lab setting, but my goal is to spend 60 percent of class time in a lab setting.
