5th Grade Science: Force & Motion

Forces include... magnetism, friction and gravity
Forces are... pushes and pulls
The force of gravity will always... pull towards the center of Earth
Increasing friction will... slow an object down.
Decreasing friction will... cause an object to move more freely.
Objects such as iron and steel are... attracted to magnets.
Opposite poles of magnets... attract.
Like poles (same poles) of magnets... repel.
Force is measured in... newtons (N).
A spring scale is... a tool used to measure force.
force a push or pull that acts on an object.
gravity the force of attraction between any two objects
motion the act of moving from one place to another
friction the force that results when 2 materials rub against each other or then their contact prevents sliding
shape the form or outline of an object
inertia the tendency of an object to resist any change in motion
kinetic energy energy due to motion
potential energy energy that is not causing any changes now but could cause changes in the future; stored energy
