#### Storyboard Text

• ﻿She's a good driver we will be fine. I don't need it.
• ﻿Don't forget to buckle your seat belt.
• ﻿What do you mean?
• ﻿I mean science! Remember when our teacher told us about the first law of motion?
• ﻿You don't ever listen, do you?!
• ﻿Newtons 1st Law An object in motion tends to stay in motion and an object at rest tends to stay at rest until a force makes it do otherwise
• The first law!  Caused by inertia, inertia is the resistance to change in motion.﻿
• Soo...if we are moving in the car and it suddenly stops inertia will cause you to fly forward and hurt yourself.  But if you use your seat belt it will act as that changing force and stop you from falling forward. ﻿
• Yeah...so?﻿
• Okay! Fine, I'm buckled!﻿
• ﻿Finally! Thank you!
• Newtons First Law: An object in motion tends to stay in motion and an object at rest tends to stay at rest
• ﻿﻿Inertia:﻿﻿ The resistance to change in motion
