See the concept in action here
This includes a lesson plan and accompanying handouts to do a lab on pop can cars (studying potential and kinetic energy). Students have to read the procedure, create the car, test different factors to make it go faster/slower/farther, and then read and answer questions about their activity.
Students love this activity! I used this in my observation, and also in job interviews and administrators were very impressed. Its hands-on, very engaging, and clearly demonstrates the concepts. The questions then ask students to explore those concepts at a higher level.
pop cans, rubber bands, paper clips, beads, masking tape, dowels or unsharpened pencils.
