4.1: The position and motion of objects can be changed by pushing or pulling.

4.1.2: Use measurement tools and standard units to compare and contrast the motion of common objects such as toy cars, balls, model rockets or planes in terms of change in position, speed and direction.

 Measuring Motion

4.1.3: Design and conduct experiments to determine how the motion of an object is related to the mass of the object and the strength of the force applied.

 Force and Fan Carts
 Free Fall Tower

4.1.4: Describe how friction forces caused by air resistance or interactions between surface materials affect the motion of objects.
