## Actions

### MS-PS2 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

• #### MS-PS2-1 Apply Newton's Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects.

• Predict forces using Newton's third law (6-G.8)
• Predict forces using Newton's third law (7-G.8)
• Predict forces using Newton's third law (8-G.8)

• #### MS-PS2-2 Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object's motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.

• Predict forces using Newton's third law (6-G.8)
• Balanced and unbalanced forces (6-G.9)
• Predict forces using Newton's third law (7-G.8)
• Balanced and unbalanced forces (7-G.9)
• Predict forces using Newton's third law (8-G.8)
• Balanced and unbalanced forces (8-G.9)

### MS-PS3 Energy

• #### MS-PS3-2 Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system.

• Identify changes in gravitational potential energy (6-H.1)
• Identify changes in gravitational potential energy (7-H.1)
• Identify changes in gravitational potential energy (8-H.1)
