This is to be used during science lessons covering energy transformations. The students can identify which type of energy the pictures are transforming from and into. The students can create their own energy transformation chains from these images or others they find.
6th Grade Science Texas TEKS:
(6.7) Matter and energy. The student knows that some of Earth's energy resources are available on a nearly perpetual basis, while others can be renewed over a relatively short period of time. Some energy resources, once depleted, are essentially nonrenewable. The student is expected to:
(A) research and debate the advantages and disadvantages of using coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear power, biomass, wind, hydropower, geothermal, and solar resources; and
(B) design a logical plan to manage energy resources in the home, school, or community
(6.9) 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:
(C) demonstrate energy transformations such as energy in a flashlight battery changes from chemical energy to electrical energy to light energy.
