Product Description
This resource includes:
o Station Synopses and Pictures (for helpful set-up of stations)
o Materials List
o 7 Station Identification Cards (with Title and Materials Labeled)
o 7 Station Direction Cards
o Student Observation Chart

These stations were designed to provide quick, simple activities that would help students gain first-hand experience seeing both kinetic and potential energy.

Station 1/Racers – Students will “race” a matchbox car down a ramp into an empty bowl or milk carton. When the car hits the back of the bowl, it will move across the floor. Students will then measure how far the box moved.

Station 2/Rubber Band Shoot – Students will start from the same point and shoot their rubber bands down the hall/across an empty area. Students will use a meter stick to measure how far their rubber bands flew.

Station 3/Scenario Sort – Students will read each scenario and sort it under the appropriate heading.

Station 4/Poppers – Students will invert a racquet ball that has been cut a little more than half. The inverted half-ball will pop when the bubble closes up.

Station 5/Energy Transfer – Students will see what happens when the energy from the larger basketball is transferred to the much smaller tennis ball. Stand back :)

Station 6/Domino Run – Students will create their own domino train…and knock it down!

Station 7/Perilous Pendulum – Students will daringly hold a hanging apple against their forehead and release it, holding their breath that it won’t come back and hit them. (It shouldn’t, by the way :))

ENJOY :)
