Forms of Energy: A Big Science Stations Unit

Energy! includes 9 station activities to use with upper elementary students. The centers focus on thermal energy, electrical energy, and light energy. The centers also address energy transfer, sound energy, and mechanical energy.

A lot of the stations are open-ended and may not have precise answers. Students are encouraged to think and analyze in order to draw conclusions about energy. Stations range in difficulty to help meet the needs of all students.

Stations:
Read It: Students read 5 information cards about mechanical energy, light energy, sound energy, electrical energy, and thermal energy.

Create It: Students create a path of light so that light reflects, refracts, transmits, and absorbs with 4 different materials. (flashlight, mirror, prism or lens, plastic slide, and black paper required)

Tech It: Students watch 2 video clips and take 2 online quizzes.

Match It: Students match energy transfer cards to the corresponding photo situation. Students choose one to explain in complete sentences.

Analyze It: Students make observations and analyze a circuit diagram.

Draw It: Students draw an illustration to show how energy changes form in their daily lives.

Explore It: Students make a circuit with a battery, holder, bulb and bulb holder, and various materials (paper clips, keys, aluminum foil,etc.) Safety should be discussed, insulated gloves should be worn, and supervision is necessary.

Explain It: Students make observations based on a table that presents information about conduction, convection, and radiation of thermal energy.

Sort It: Students sort materials as conductors or insulators of electricity, then describe the differences.
