A River Ran Through It

Students research how water is used to generate electricity. They investigate water's potential-to-kinetic energy transfer in hands-on activities about falling water and waterwheels. They take measurements, calculate averages and graph their results. They write about an innovative hydro-electrical power technology after researching the history of the waterwheel and water turbines.

Lesson Planet has helped me find things that work but more importantly things that don't work for me as a teacher. Every teacher is unique in their style and Lesson Planet has helped me define my style.
