Are you challenged to find ways for students to construct and interpret graphical displays of data to describe the relationships of kinetic energy to the mass of an object and to the speed of an object .... especially in a FUN and interactive way? This game is sure to do the trick!

Students are paired (or grouped) and given a "Would You Rather" card with two choices of scenarios involving Kinetic Energy on the card. Each scenario provides students with the Mass and Velocity of an item and they have to decide which one they'd rather face!!

Students then work with their group to create a model of the scenarios, calculate the kinetic energy of the incoming items and decide which they'd rather encounter. Then the class shares their discoveries and their decisions about what they chose and why!

NGSSMS-PS3-1
Construct and interpret graphical displays of data to describe the relationships of kinetic energy to the mass of an object and to the speed of an object. Emphasis is on descriptive relationships between kinetic energy and mass separately from kinetic energy and speed. Examples could include riding a bicycle at different speeds, rolling different sizes of rocks downhill, and getting hit by a wiffle ball versus a tennis ball.
