Science of Energy

Topic: Science of Energy

Elementary Science of Energy (e-publication)      Cool Coal Story Props (pdf)

These guides include background information and hands-on experiments to explore the different forms of energy and how energy is transformed from one form to another. Groups of students master six stations, then teach others about the energy transformations at their stations. Teacher demonstrations are included to introduce the unit. Reinforcement activities are also included. The stations include equipment to teach transformations focusing on kinetic and potential energy, heat, light, motors, batteries, and electromagnetism.

Greek Mythology and the Forms of Energy

This  guide  provides resource materials and  a  Teacher Guide for incorporating Greek mythology into your science curriculum relating to forms of energy. This innovative interdisciplinary activity was developed by Donna Quillen of North Carolina.

   
 



Intermediate Science of Energy  (e-publication)      Cool Coal Story Props (pdf)

Hands-on experiments and background information that allow students to explore the different forms of energy and how they are transformed. Students master forms of energy and their transformations, and then teach others what they have learned and how it can be visualized in the world around them.

Primary Science of Energy Teacher Guide  (e-publication)
Primary Science of Energy Student Guide  (e-publication)

This guide includes background information and hands-on experiments to explore the fundamental concepts of energy. Students explore the science of motion, heat, sound, and light with a serier of simple activities that incorporate both English and metric measurements, using safe student thermometers, balances, rulers, measuring tapes, beakers, and graduated cylinders. Students learn to make observations, measure, record results, compare and contrast, categorize, make predictions, analyze and graph results, and draw conclusions.
