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.

As a first year teacher Lesson Planet was an incrediable help. I could see what other teachers had done to give me ideas. The time guidelines, materials needed and resource information gave me guidance in structuring my own plans. Many of the plans are well laid out and were very usable, which was a great time saver.
