PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit was created to teach students about the different states and forms of energy. Students will learn about the different energy forms and states, how energy is applied in a real world context of Work and Power, and how we as a society use energy in our everyday lives.

This unit culminates with a deep study of Renewable and Non-Renewable Energy Resources where students must create a presentation for their classmates and present their findings.

Once you download this unit, you will not have to do anything except make copies for your students and guide them through the lessons, guided notes, practice problems, activities, and projects. Therefore you can focus on providing feedback and individual attention to your students.
