This presentation covers the Next Generation Science Physical Science 3 Energy component for fourth grade. A definition is given for energy and Kinetic and Potential energy are discussed, along with the conservation of energy. Energy transfer and collisions are also discussed as well as how the earth receives most of its energy from the sun. The idea of energy transfer from the sun to other forms on the earth and then converted to other useful forms is also covered. This includes two hands on activities for students plus access to an online 10 question test for students in which I can provide you info about how each of your students performed on the test.
