Instructional Ideas

  • Perform experiments related to kinetic and potential energy during class time
Classroom Considerations

  • Requires background knowledge of various formulas
  • Lesson best fits as a review of energy types
Pros

  • Includes three worksheets that review the material in the slides
Cons

  • Video uses many colloquialisms that may not be appropriate in all classrooms
  • Uses falling Twin Towers on 9/11 as an example of potential energy converting to kinetic, which is a sensitive topic and a rather graphic representation
