Lesson plan on Motion: Acceleration

The lesson plan is a very important tool for teaching. Today we are going to discuss the lesson plan on Motion: Acceleration

Lesson plan on Motion: Speed and Velocity

Name of the Teacher: XX
Roll No: 00
Class: IX
The average age of the students: 14 + years
Subject: Physical Science
Lesson Whole: Motion
Lesson Unit: Speed & Velocity
Duration: 40 Minutes
Date: DD/MM/YY

General Aims

  • To create interest in the students to study the subject Physical Science
  • To develop a scientific attitude among the students

Specific Objective

  • To enable the students to recall the term acceleration
  • To enable the students to differentiate between uniform and non-uniform acceleration

Teaching Aids

Blackboard, chalk, duster, chart, and pointer

Step-I Preparation

Motivation: In order to motivate the students the following questions will be asked

QuestionsExpected Answer
1. when a train starts moving from a platform, what does its speed increase or decreaseIncrease
2. what happens when an airplane land at the airportspeed decrease gradually
3. A cyclist moving through a busy street, when his velocity increase, what does it call?He is said to acceleration
4. what does it call when the cyclist’s speed decreasedDe-acceleration or retarding


So class, today we are going to learn about “Acceleration”

Step-II Presentation

Teaching PointsInstructional ObjectivesTeaching MethodsTeacher’s activity/ DiscussionBlackboard workTesting-Learning outcomesLearning Outcomes
1. AccelerationStudents are able to define accelerationLecture Method
The rate of change of velocity of a body with respect to time is called its acceleration
Acceleration: Change in velocity/Time taken to change
=Final velocity-Initial Velocity/Time taken to change
where Time=t, Initial velocity=u, Final velocity=v, acceleration=a
1. Define Acceleration. write down the formula of acceleration students are able to define acceleration
2. units of accelerationStudents are able to identify the SI unitLecture methodThe SI unit of acceleration is Meter per second square
SI unit of acceleration is m/s-22. write down the SI unit of accelerationStudents learns the SI unit of acceleration.
3. Uniform accelerationstudents able to recognize the uniform accelerationLecture and Discussion MethodWhen a body undergoes equal changes in velocit in equal intervals of time, the body is said to be moving with uniform acceleration
Ex. A freely falling body under the pull of Earth
-It is an equal change in velocity in an equal interval of time
3. what is uniform acceleration?
students able to define uniform acceleration
4. Non-Uniform or Variable accelerationStudents able to differentiate between uniform and non-uniform accelerationLecture cum Discussion MethodWhen a body undergoes unequal changes in velocity in equal intervals of time, the body is said to be in non-uniform motion.
Ex. when a car push breaks frequently on a crowded road
A body is said to have non-uniform acceleration when it undergoes unequal changes of velocity4. Define variable accelerationstudents able to differentiate between uniform and non-uniform acceleration
5. Definition of RetardationStudents are able to recall the term retardationLecture methodIf the velocity of a body decrease then the rate of change of velocity is negative and it is called retardation.
In this case final velocity of the body is lesser than the initial velocity
Final Velocity is lesser then the Initial velocity
5. What is retardation?students learn about retardation

Step-III Recapitulation

In order to test the pupil’s understanding of the lesson just taught, the following question will be asked

  1. Define the term acceleration
  2. What is the SI unit of acceleration
  3. What is called retardation?
  4. What do you mean by uniform acceleration?
  5. What is non-uniform acceleration?

Step-IV Remedial Teaching

Remedial teaching will be done if found necessary

Step-V Home Assignment

The following questions will be given for homework

  1. Distinguish between acceleration and Retardation
  2. What is acceleration? Give example
  3. what is variable acceleration. Give example

Conclusion: Well class, Today we have learned about “Acceleration”. In the next class, we will learn about “Force”.
