Electrical Energy from Source to Destination
After viewing images of energy resources used for generating electricity, the class discusses the process of transformation. In pairs, they work on describing what they see in a diagram of a power plant and in graphing its energy data.
6th - 8th Science CCSS: Designed
Investigation: Conservation of Energy
By rolling marbles down a six-foot length of track, physical scientists determine how much energy is lost to heat. It is recommended that you opt for the foam pipe insulation track because more friction slows the marble, allowing...
5th - 8th Science CCSS: Adaptable
Energy and Work: Transformation Through Engines
Students conduct a webquest on an energy source they chose. In this physics activity, students design an experiment to determine the factors affecting potential and kinetic energy. They calculate speed and create distance vs. time graphs.
9th - 12th Science
Urban heat Islands: An Introduction to Energy Transfer and Transformation
Elementary school physical scientists explore kinetic mechanical energy by dropping a golf ball on different surfaces. They discuss how human made materials might react to light differently from nature made materials. This lesson plan...
