									                                      Inertia Project                    Due: _______________
Pop-up books use physics to create stories with motion. As you apply a force (a push or
pull) to an object in a pop-up book, it will move or reveal another piece of the story. You
are going to use your knowledge of physics to create a pop-up book of stories about
Newton’s First Law: Inertia for an audience of elementary students.

Task: Create a 2-page short story (or two 1-page short stories) explaining Inertia. One
page/story must explain inertia for objects at rest. One page/story must explain inertia for
objects in motion. Each page must incorporate a pop-up element.

Group Element: Short stories will be written and created individually. Individual pages
will be compiled into a group called “Collection of Short Stories about Inertia” or
something along those lines. The group book will include a table of contents listing each
short story and author.

Grading:
Storyboard (5 points/individual)
Proper short story elements including title, plot, etc (10 points/individual)
Page/story including objects at rest, explained clearly (20 points/individual)
At least one pop-up element on “at rest” page (10 points/individual)
Page/story including objects in motion, explained clearly (20 points/individual)
At least one pop-up element on “in motion” page (10 points/individual)
Neat, easy to read, audience-appropriate (5 points/individual)
Introduction explaining inertia – background, what it is, how it works (15 points/group)
Book title page and table of contents (5 points/group)
Extra credit: incorporate how mass affects inertia into your story (5 points/individual)
