Spark a conversation and see Ss improve their retention! These worksheets ask Ss to make a connection and ask if they are like or unlike the object, and why or why not? In addition to content, it encourages Ss to be creative – look for comparisons and contrasts far from mundane. And they must give details on what feature they are comparing.
No answer key is included because Ss are encouraged to offer unique insights.
Three worksheets are included for Work and Energy Critical Concept Conversation Starters:
- impulse, momentum, and type of collisions
- work and types of energy
- simple machines
