This educational wallsheet illustrates Newton's First Law of Motion. In this experiment, students will discover the properties of inertia and motion, and see how they have very important real-life applications. The activity is complete and worksheets are easily copied for classroom use. The activity provides teachers with background information, pre-activity reading, pre-activity discussion questions, an assessment, and post-activity extension activities that tie student observations back to the Swift satellite. The activity requires the addition of readily available materials. This is the first of four posters on Newton's Laws and a copy of the wallsheet intended to accompany this activity is available on this website.
