This Alternative Energy Part II - Lesson Eight of Eight - Energy Conversion and Propulsion lesson plan also includes:
- Join to access all included materials
Students investigate the results of different propulsion methods. In this propulsion lesson, students measure the distance a test toy car goes using different types of propulsion. They record the distances in data tables before calculating speed using distance and time. They rank the different propulsion systems and discuss which is the fastest, and which would last the longest.
