Energy Transformation with Simple Machines

First graders identify both potential and kinetic energy in a game they play in the classroom. They listen as the teacher explains the difference between potential and kinetic energy when observing a simple machine. Using simple machines, they hold the machine at rest to show potential energy, and show it in motion to demonstrate kinetic energy.
