## Check Out the Force and Motion MatchCards

The Matchcards are great for teaching and reinforcing the objectives. There is one MatchCard for each of the objectives listed above for the force and motion unit study.

The MatchCards give you:

• A simple diagram of the concept
• Information pieces to place on the student card as a game
• Instructor's card with all the answers, a suggested activity for teaching
• A system for built in review

Every week you will use the corresponding MatchCard to teach the objective. In addition, the students review 5 previously learned MatchCards two or three times per week. This game-like activity is a favorite activity of many students. The Instructor's Guide gives you more ideas on organizing and using the MatchCards.

Unit Study Log

You will complete a Unit Study Log. It will include your bibliography, description of science projects you do, list of daily readings and activities, and Grading Sheet. The Instructor's Guide gives more information on keeping a Unit Study Log.
