PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for something different to help your students understand potential and kinetic energy while they learn how to design their own experiment? Then this is the lesson for you!

Your students will enjoy getting to start their learning off with playing with cars and ramps in order to make observations about what happens. Best part is they will be doing math and not even minding it at all! Students will use a meter stick to measure the distance the car rolls. Then they will use statistics to figure out the mean, median, mode, and range of the 3 trials they collect. After making observations, students will learn about potential and how it different from kinetic energy. The lesson sequence ends with students using the 4 Question Strategy to brainstorm their own testable question.

Along the way, students write a descriptive paragraph as well as complete an expository writing where they compare and contrast the results from the activity and the experiment.

Lesson includes:

*Descriptive lesson plans
**Descriptive writing frames
***Math: Mean, Median, Mode, and Range data sheets along with hint cards to help students
****Reading Strategy: Concept Definition Mapping as well as student reading sheet!
*****Lesson plan also includes a link to a free video to help you understand how to use the 4 Question Brainstorming tool that has been included as well! Just go here: http://justsimplescience.com/services-view/professional-development/
