PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A graphic organizer helps students to understand the types of potential and kinetic energies. Show the Powerpoint to walk them through completing their "Energy Family Tree". Then, introduce the concept of the Law of Conservation of Energy and energy transformations by discussing what a Rube Goldberg machine is... a video clip in the Powerpoint shows a real Rube Goldberg machine in action!

A trip to the Dollar Store is all you need to gather various fun, simple toys for Energy in Toys activity during which the students will practice thinking about energy transformations. Slinkies, wind-up toys, hand-clappers, zip-fliers, light-up microphones, and/or whatever toys you have on hand will work! Students love getting to play with toys for 20 minutes while they consider the types of energies being employed by each.

An at-home task is homework after the lesson.
