Qualitative Examples of Conservation of Mechanical EnergyLesson Planet
9th - Higher Ed
Instructions for series of six activites, a reading of scientific literature, and a choice of six assessments await you in this physics resource. Well-written plans guide you in guiding your pupils to experiment with levers, pulleys,...
Urban Heat Islands: An Introduction to Energy Transfer and TransformationLesson Planet
4th - 6th
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...
Investigation: Water WheelLesson Planet
6th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
Middle school scientists construct a working water wheel from an aluminum pie pan. Because of the sharp edges on the cut aluminum, this activity is for mature learners only. You could have your class compete to see whose wheel can lift...
Potential and Kinetic EnergyLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Here's a resource ideal for independent learners who need extra reinforcement or would like to work ahead. These textbook chapters and practice problems cover many basic physics concepts, starting with potential and kinetic energy and...
Pushing it Off a CliffLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Focus on the conservation of energy, specifically looking at gravitational potential energy and kinetic energy, with a lecture that involves having friends throw light objects at each other to determine which has more kinetic energy and...
Junior Solar Sprint Series: Gears and Drive BeltsLesson Planet
5th - 8th
Activate middle schoolers' minds with this physical science activity. Learners vary the diameter of gears and the number of teeth on them to find how energy output is affected. This writeup features well-developed background information...
Energy Forms and States DemonstrationsLesson Planet
6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
Does a tennis ball have energy? What about a bowling ball? Demonstrate concepts of different forms of energy forms and states with a variety of objects. Using the equations for potential and kinetic energy, learners determine the amount...
Typical Numeric Questions for Physics I - Work and EnergyLesson Planet
9th - Higher Ed
A total of 29 word problems furnish practice in solving for work, energy, and force. A few of the questions display diagrams to help learners visualize the systems, and all of them list five choices from which they select the correct...
TE Lesson: Kinetic and Potential Energy of MotionLesson Planet
6th - 8th
Pupils investigate the difference between potential and kinetic energy. They examine the formulae associated with both types of energy. They complete how quickly a pendulum with swing by converting potential energy into kinetic energy.
Ramp and Review (for High School)Lesson Planet
9th - 11th CCSS: Designed
Rolling for momentum. As part of a study of mechanical energy, momentum, and friction, class members experiment rolling a ball down an incline and having it collide with a cup. Groups take multiple measurements and perform several...
Energy in a NutshellLesson Planet
11th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Reduce the work it takes to plan a physics lesson on energy with the help of this instructional presentation. Beginning with clear explanations of kinetic and potential energy, this resource continues on to familiarize young scientists...
