I used this powerpoint to teach my sixth graders about potential and kinetic energy in a larger unit of forces and motion. This powerpoint has 18 slides that introduce students to potential and kinetic energy. It also includes several demonstrations, videos and an interactive website that helps reinforce the students the concept.
This powerpoint also includes strips of paper. During the lecture, students can move the strips of paper into two columns- potential energy and kinetic energy. At the end of class, have students go through the two columns. This helped me gauge to see if the students understood potential and kinetic energy.
This was such a fun lecture to teach! Enjoy!
