Where Is the Force?

In the constructivist 5E Instructional Model, the “Engage” section aims to grab the students’ attention and interest. In Science Bits, this section always begins with a motivating video that presents a situation familiar to the students, introduces some initial concepts, and points out some misconceptions. Next, an activity based on the video serves to mobilize the students’ prior knowledge. Watch this video taken from the “Engage” section of the 5E Lesson entitled Forces.
