Introduction to Energy
• Students will be able to name and describe at least 5 kinds of energy • Students will be able to identify and explain simple energy transformations
This lesson will introduce students to each of the different types of energy using PowerPoint slides, partner activities, and hands-on experiences with different kinds of energy including: batteries (chemical), electrical circuits (electrical), motors (motion), speakers (sound), vinegar and baking soda (chemical) and magnets (magnetic). Finally, students will examine how energy can be transformed from one kind to another. This is suitable as a stand-alone lesson.
