TEACHER ENRICHMENT INITIATIVES

Activity 1A: Motion Commotion: A Word Experience Chart

 

Motion Commotion is a series of station labs in which students explore the physics of movement and ways to assess motion, flexibility, muscle, endurance, joint, inertia, functional reach, speed, acceleration, and balance. For many students, these concepts will be new and it will be beneficial for the teacher to use a word experience chart during the activity. A word experience chart is a tool that can be used by the teacher to collect student terminology and explanations in their own words as they experience the activity. After the activity is complete, the word experience chart provides a common basis for discussion. The teacher can use student terms and explanations to add correct vocabulary, correct misunderstood concepts, etc.
