Energy Resource Bundle
**RESOURCE UPDATE - NOW INCLUDES 5 READING PASSAGES!
This bundled product contains the following 6 StudentSavvy resources!
All you'll ever need for a unit on Energy! :)
More information on each resource:
-Energy Reading Passages
It contains 5 Engaging, Non-Fiction Reading Comprehension Passages with Directions for Student Annotations! Reading Comprehension Questions also included!
Questions & Answer Keys for Each of the 5 Reading Passages!
COMMON CORE ALIGNED!
Aligned with Energy Interactive Notebook (Not required to use this resource, but recommended)
Quick overview of topics covered in this resource include:
1.) Let’s Get the Ball Rolling with Kinetic and Potential Energy
-Overview of kinetic energy (object that is in motion)
-how it is measured (joule)
speed, mass, and velocity determine kinetic energy
-various examples of kinetic energy (A tennis ball thrown in the air, a basketball rolling down a hill)
-Overview of potential energy (object that is storing energy)
-Units of measurement (joule)
-Height, distance, and mass are factors that impact potential energy
-Various examples of potential energy (ball sitting at the top of a hill, someone about to shoot an arrow, etc.)
Keywords: kinetic energy, potential energy, joule,
2.) Heating Things Up with Thermal (Heat) Energy
-Overview of thermal energy (generated by heat, molecules moving in an object, kinetic energy)
-Description of how heat transfer works
-Three types of heat transfer
-Conduction (explanation of how it works and examples)
-Convection (explanation of how it works and examples)
-Radiation (explanation of how it works and examples)
Keywords: thermal energy, heat transfer, conduction, convection, radiation
3.) Getting Energized with Chemical Energy
-Overview of chemical energy (energy stored in the bonds of chemicals and released during a chemical reaction)
-Various examples of chemical energy (batteries, fuel, coal, matches, wood, etc.) each example, explanation of how energy is being released.
Keywords: chemical energy, chemical reaction, exothermic
4.) Types of Circuits and Electrical Energy
-Overview of electrical energy (negatively and positively charge electrons in a circuit)
-Description of how it can produce different types of energy, such as light, thermal, and sound energy.
-Description of an open circuit and how it does not produce electrical energy
-Description of closed circuit and it has a complete path for electrical currents to flow
-Description of a parallel circuit and how it contains more than one path to flow through
-Description of series circuit and how it has resistors arranged in a chain, so the circuit only has one path.
Keywords: electrical energy, negatively charged electrons, positively charged electrons, circuit, open circuit, closed circuit, parallel circuit, series circuit
5.) Creating Waves with Light and Sound Energy
Overview of Light energy (energy our eyes can detect and made up of electro-magnetic radiation)
-Overview of natural light (comes from the sun)
-Description of artificial light (any light not from the sun such as halogen, florescent light, etc)
Overview of the different ways light transfers or passes through material (absorption, refraction, reflection, and transmission)
-More in-depth definition of absorption and examples
-In-depth definition of refraction and examples
-In-depth description of reflection and examples
-In -depth description of transmission and examples
Overview of Sound energy and how it travels in a wave
-Description of how volume and pitch affect waves and frequency (Low pitch notes have lower frequency waves. High pitch notes have higher frequency waves. Soft notes have small waves and loud notes have big waves.)
Keywords: light energy, sound energy, natural light, artificial light, absorption, refraction, reflection, transmission, longitudinal waves, pitch, volume, frequency
- Energy Interactive Notebook
This product contains interactive cut and paste learning material for students to create an organized science interactive notebook.
Energy types covered in this unit include:
Kinetic Energy, Potential Energy, Thermal Energy, Chemical Energy, Light Energy, and Sound Energy
Fun interactive activities and foldables for students to learn facts about each energy type!
- Energy Interactive PowerPoint
This teaching resource is quite the virtual experience! This Energy Interactive PowerPoint can be used as a powerful classroom presentation or students can click their way through it on individual computers.
- Energy STEM Challenge
There are 2 Energy STEM Challenges in this pack. Each STEM Challenge has detailed directions, photo examples, a list of materials needed, prediction section, brainstorming section, trials 1, 2, & 3, final results section with drawings, and a reflection section.
The STEM Challenges include:
1. Marble Run Challenge!
Using a list of supplies, students must design a marble run that showcases both kinetic and potential energy at use. Students must be able to label which parts of their marble run shows the energy transfer. Students are not required to use all of the items listed below but they are not allowed to add items to the list. If they test it and it does not work properly, they have two more attempts to fix their design. They have two days to finalize their roller coaster/marble run.
2. Solar Oven Challenge
Using a list of supplies, students must a solar oven that captures sunlight and retains heat. The solar oven should be able to melt crayons within an hour. Students are not required to use all of the items listed below but they are not allowed to add items to the list. If they test it and it does not work properly, they have two more attempts to fix their design. Students have one hour to finalize the design of their solar oven. (The time it takes to test their design does not count towards the one hour) The group that is able to melt the crayons the fastest wins the challenge!
-Energy Google Classroom Student Projects
This product contains 2 digital projects that students can complete using Google Slides! This resource has a brochure project and an info-graphic / poster project.
Each student-centered project has a sample project and detailed project instructions for the students.
Info-graphic / Poster Project
Using a list of topics, student choose what they would like to research related to energy. All of the elements in the info-graphic must be organized, clearly visible, and well placed. Creativity with color and photos is a must! **More instructions found in the resource
Using a template, students design an informational brochure that highlights important facts and topics about energy.
