PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Get students started learning about energy with two simple chemical reactions . Build a catapult using classroom materials to shoot a cotton ball across the room. Follow-up with activities about the different sources of light and strike a tuning fork to show sound can transfer energy and vibrate water.

A overview video introduces you to this resource - it's like I'm sitting next to you explaining your options!

Three short student texts, written at different reading levels, can be printed in color or with blackline images for students to color. Two are translated into Spanish.

Audio recordings of the texts have been included in the unit resources for students who benefit from hearing the information.

Four videos and eight PowerPoint™ presentations are included to make it very easy to introduce energy to your students.

This lesson is part of a series about physics including: Energy, Light, Sound, Electricity, and Heat 1 or Heat 2 .

The activities use materials* that you can collect locally.

Use this resource in a unit to meet NGSS 4-PS3-2♦
