Product Description
I use this an introduction activity to Energy Transformations, but it can also be used as a formative activity.
There are a couple of ways you can organize this activity.
High/On-level: I give the students a warm-up/bell ringer asking them two open-ended questions: How does power get from the power plant to the school? And How does energy get from the sun to your cells? This allows me to see what they already know about the topic.
From this point I randomly select students and give them the half sheet of paper and try to organize themselves in order of how they think energy is transformed.
On-Level/ Low: I give them a warm-up/bell ringer and they order how they think power gets to the school and how energy gets from the sun to cells.
Rather than immediately giving them the correct answer, I pass out the cards and have them figure it out. Their classmates tend to help.

NGSS Standards:
MS-PS3-3 Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.
MS-PS3-5 Construct, use and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.

GSE Standards:
S8P2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the law of conservation of energy to develop arguments that energy can transform from one form to another within a system.
