This is an awesome resource I use when teaching about Energy and It's Transformations. Energy transformations are often difficult for middle school students to comprehend. With this activity, students first identify what form of energy is demonstrated by the object in the picture. To add to the challenge, then, students must identify a transformation that would be likely to occur for each of the objects.
This would be very useful in small groups, pairs, or individually to assess student learning. The could be used as a formal or informal assessment.
There are also several ways you could make this a game for your students. Be creative! Do what works best with your kids!
