Potential and Kinetic Energy

Seventh graders identify and define potential and kinetic energy, as well as discuss the meanings of each and talk about various examples for each. Then they go outside or to the gym to put their new knowledge into action. Students discuss the forms of bumping and serving a volleyball and then, demonstrate both forms of energy through holding the ball (potential energy) and serving and bumping the ball (kinetic energy).
