I like to use the following 3 videos when teaching students about Newton’s Laws of Motion. The examples, and descriptions are excellent. Plus, it is cool to see scientists, as astronauts in space.

Newton’s 1st Law of Motion: the Law of Inertia

Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion: Force, Mass, and Acceleration

Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion: Action and Reaction

Disclaimer: Viewer’s have raised issues with the explanations provided in the 3rd video. Read the comments below the clip to consider any misconceptions presented in the video.
