Seventh graders explore about energy transformations and trace them in a simple closed system. They build energy "chains" of their own design. Pupils complete a hands-on project where they attach the "links" in a "chain" connecting a battery (chemical energy), wires (electrical energy), and a small motor (mechanical energy), and then add additional "links" of their choices.

Energy At Play
If you can find Tinker Toys™, then this may be a fun assignment for your physical science class. Using the construction set and a few other toys, they examine the forces involved when it they are being played with. For each, they determine how potential energy is stored, when kinetic energy is in action, and how energy is transferred.

The Chemistry of Refining Crude Oil
Consider our energy sources: wood, coal, oil, uranium. Learners compare the pollution to energy produced for each. They practice fractional distillation of an alcohol/water mixture to simulate the process of refining crude oil. Thought-provoking questions are assigned as a follow-up to the laboratory exercise.

The Transfer of Energy 1: Thermochemistry
Budding chemists achieve a basic understanding of the role of heat in chemical reactions. An online worksheet gives learners instructions and questions to answer as they investigate the Chem4Kids website and perform a hands-on lab inquiry. Using calcium chloride and ammonium nitrate, both in water, they record the temperature every five minutes over a 30-minute span.

How Power Plants Work 1
First of three lessons, this is a great start to a unit on energy. As you demonstrate, learners discover different types of energy and how it is converted from one form to another. They then focus in on the generation of electricity by hydropower, build a turbine, and use the turbine to lift a washer.
