## WHAT ARE WE LEARNING ABOUT?

SCIENCE: Toys R Us. Over the next few weeks, students will be working to answer the question: Is it possible to design an entertaining game or toy?

Throughout this unit, students will show their learning by:

• describing and comparing patterns of movement.
• describing how force causes change.
• designing a game or toy.
• communicating ideas about force and motion.
