Forces and Heat Game

Forces and Heat Game

This is the game we played at the end of our units on forces and heat. You can find all the lessons for this by following the STEAM tab at the top of the page. I used pictures in these questions to help the kids remember what we learned about this year. We had the kids go into teams of three or four kids and write down their answers on scrap paper. Then, we marked them at the end of class and I went over the answers. Some of these things we learned over 15 weeks ago, so I wanted to make sure I went over the answers with them. I have some examples of slides with pictures in the question list below. There are links to the lesson that covered these topics in the questions.
