Forces and Motion Science Games

In this series of games, your students will learn that each force acts on one particular object and has both strength and a direction.  Forces and Motion learning objective — based on NGSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research.

Scroll down for a preview of this learning objective’s games and the concepts.

Concepts Covered

A force is a push or a pull on an object. Each force acts on one particular object.  A force has both a strength and a direction.

Net force is the sum of all the forces acting on an object. When the net force on an object is zero, the forces are balanced. When the net force on an object is not zero, the forces are unbalanced.

Speed is the rate at which an object changes its position. An object at rest typically has multiple forces acting on it, but they add to give zero net force on the object. Motion is the change in the position of an object. Gravity is a force that pulls all objects on Earth down towards Earth’s surface.
