This Energy Transfer QR Code Scavenger Hunt by Brad Cloud is designed to address the following 6th Grade Texas science TEKS:
(9) Force, motion, and energy. The student knows that the Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it just changes form. The student is expected to:
(A) investigate methods of thermal energy transfer, including conduction, convection, and radiation;
(B) verify through investigations that thermal energy moves in a predictable pattern from warmer to cooler until all the substances attain the same temperature such as an ice cube melting; and
(C) demonstrate energy transformations such as energy in a flashlight battery changes from chemical energy to electrical energy to light energy.
There are 10 QR codes that are given to assist students in answering 10 corresponding questions regarding energy transformation. Download the preview document to see the questions that are posed.
An answer sheet and and answer key are provided (including the source URL for the QR codes).
This activity could be used as an introduction to a unit or a study guide.
