Harris, J. (2004). Science 101:Are there different types of force and motion? Science and Children, 19.

This is a great article that discusses the different types of forces and motions. It reviews two different types of force and three different types of motion.  This article also gives real life examples that the students can relate to to help them understand all the different types of force and motion that are explained in the article.  By the article giving real world examples it gives the teacher a starting point when explaining the different types of force and motion to the students.  Teachers can easily get their hands on the different tools that the article gives as examples.  For example teachers can get easy access to a pendulum or a slide.  This article is also a great resource for teachers teaching about forces and motion because the article uses simplistic language, definitions, is short, and broken up in  a way that would be easy for a fifth grader or middle schooler to read on their own which makes this not only a great resource for teachers but also for the students in the classroom!
