5th Grade Science
We will begin our unit of force, motion, and energy. Students will learn that energy occurs in many forms and will study the effect of forces on objects. Students will explore the uses of energy, including mechanical, light, thermal, electrical, and sound. Students will learn about circuits and light.
Students need to study the following vocabulary for the unit. Vocabulary Quiz is Thursday!
Force- a push or pull that can change the position or motion of an object
Motion-a change in the position of an object
Gravity-the force that pulls objects toward each other
Friction-a force that works against motion
Push-the act of applying force in order to move something away
Pull-the act of applying force to move something toward or with you
Balanced Forces-forces that cancel each other out because they are equal in size and opposite in directions
Unbalanced Forces-forces that cause a change in an object's motion because they don't cancel each other out
Potential Energy-energy that an object has because of its position or its condition
Kinetic Energy-energy that an object has because of motion
