Urban heat Islands: An Introduction to Energy Transfer and Transformation

Elementary school physical scientists explore kinetic mechanical energy by dropping a golf ball on different surfaces. They discuss how human made materials might react to light differently from nature made materials. This lesson plan includes directions for the lab investigation as well as talking points for a lecture. Since no measurements are taken with the ball bounce activity, and the temperature activity is only discussed and not carried out, this standard lesson is not ideal.

Lesson Planet gives me ideas that help me organize differentiated instruction. I can always count on finding a great new idea to give a twist to a concept that has become routine.
