Motions, Forces, Energy...& amusement park rides!

On Caught In the Middle's recommendation, I bought Disney Imagineer's ENERGY video.

It didn't disappoint. 

Now, the students will be researching and analyzing the motions, forces, and energy of 
their favorite amusement park ride.

They have 2 days to create a informational brochure about the energy of their ride.

I created a sample to show them the expectations (seen above, click for it below):

The Motions and Forces of Disney's "Mad Tea Party" Tea Cups Ride

Update: Check out the brochures below:

I used a generic rubric for grading: Generic Brochure Rubric
(Next time around, I would like to create a more detailed and specific rubric.)

Hello, Mrs. W! I am a middle school science teacher as well, and I love your teaching blog :) I was wondering if you would please grant me access to your "Motions. Forces, Energy ....amusement park rides" Activity files, including the directions, sample, and the rubric. I would love to do this project with my students before the Winter break. I look forward to your reply. Thank you in advance. My email:
