```					              Newton’s Three Laws of Motion Project

Mr. McMullen & Mrs. Palat

What to do:
You are an author making a book on Newton’s three laws of motion. The book will be graded on
able to completely understand Newton’s three laws of motion.

The Process
1. Make a cover for your book which should include picture(s), title, your name, and science period.

2. Find some pictures of Sir Isaac Newton and copy and paste them into your book. Write a brief
history of Newton. (Where and when was he born, how long did he live, and what were some of the
things he worked on).

3. Who was Galileo and what did he have to do with Newton? (Find a picture of Galileo)

4. Find the three laws of motion and copy and paste them into your assignment sheet. Make sure
you label each one. (Heading) Then under the law simplify it in your own words to explain it.

5. Give an application (picture) for each law of motion .Under this picture explain how it shows the
law. (In your own words DO NOT COPY AND PASTE explanation.)

6. Find one activity for illustrating each of the three laws and be prepared to show and explain one
