Includes 9 station cards, one for each form of energy. Each station has kids "play" with a form of energy (except nuclear - there's a reading for that). Each card has student directions on the front and materials required on the back.
Perfect for NGSS energy standards MS-PS3-1 MS-PS3-2 MS-PS3-5.
This activity is a great way to let kids experience each form of energy hands-on! It does need quite a few supplies, however it's a Word document, so you can edit for the supplies you have on hand. We find that we usually have many of the supplies in the school science supply closet, and everything else is available pretty cheap on Amazon. Plus, you can use your judgement to make some pretty simple substitutions.
The corresponding worksheet that students can use to record their
observations and answer simple analysis questions can be found HERE.
