They discuss the concepts of work and energy, then using the four question strategy, they design an experiment that addresses how to give cars more potential energy using the materials given to them.

My students have had many opportunities to extend their learning by engaging in extra practice activities that I found through Lesson Planet. It's much easier to differentiate instruction because I can pull together various levels of the same skill. Thanks for making my life a little less hectic.
