Force is a push or pull on an object. Motion is a change in an object's position. Forces cause motion when they act on an object.
Force and Motion
Force: A push or pull on an object. Motion: A change in an object's position. Gravity: A force that pulls objects together.
Which force affects the motion of an object?
- Air Resistance
The force of gravity affects everything on Earth. The faster something moves, the more kinetic energy it has. All forces have an equal and opposite reaction.

Draw / write: How do forces cause motion?
Can you think of an example where two forces are acting on an object at the same time?
Can you think of a real-world situation where motion stopped because the forces were balanced?
