Newton's Third Law: Action–Reaction

Students need to be signed in to complete this lesson. Go to "About This Activity" below to find out more.

In this blended lesson supporting literacy skills, an early astronaut's experiences teach students that Newton's third law of motion—for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction—applies both on Earth and in outer space. Students develop their literacy skills as they explore a science focus on how engineers consider the way forces act as they solve problems and develop designs. During this process, they read informational text, learn and practice vocabulary words, and explore content through a video and interactive activities.
