  1. Students use this worksheet to calculate and graph how MASS and SPEED affect the kinetic ENERGY of different vehicles (in two separate graphs). The math is simple and middle school appropriate in level. All data is based on realistic information about various types of cars, so this adds engagement
  2. Explores the questions "How does SPEED affect kinetic energy?" and "How does MASS affect kinetic energy?" (This worksheet is also effective for Newton's 2nd Law, force and motion units.)Students use a free and easy to access online program (printed on the document for kids to enter). They "play" wi
  3. Students will recognize energy transformations occurring in the world around them. Given 30 picture cards of things like hair dryers and solar powered cars, they complete a graphic organizer worksheet (1 page front + back) to record energy forms before and after. You could give students the sheets
  4. Set of 3 quick but fun review games for an NGSS energy unit - fun as stations! Includes the following games:1. Test Review Taboo - Played in pairs, students review vocabulary terms with a set of 14 game cards. Each card has a word that Player #1 must get Player #2 to say - but the trick is they a
  5. Challenge students to create a simple TOY based on energy changing forms - clear, simple instructions lead to GREAT projects!

INDIVIDUAL DESCRIPTIONS:

Graph How Speed & Mass Affect Kinetic Energy: This activity has middle school students calculate (simple math, middle school appropriate) and GRAPH how the MASS and SPEED of different vehicles affects their kinetic energy (in two separate graphs). All data is based on realistic information about various types of cars, so this adds engagement for kids.

Online Energy Activity: Explores the questions "How does SPEED affect energy?" and "How does MASS affect energy?" Students use a free and easy to access online program. They "play" with object size and velocity of objects in a catapult and then measure and record the resulting energy. It includes the manipulation of variables, the collection of data, and data analysis.

Energy Transformations Picture Cards Activity: Effective for true comprehension, this activity is designed to help middle school students recognize the energy transformations that occur in the world around us. Students are given 30 colored picture cards of things like hair dryers and solar powered cars and then complete a graphic organizer (1 page front + back) to record energy forms before and after.

3 Energy Review Games: 3 quick but fun energy review games, including "Taboo Review", Energy Chain, and an Energy "Cootie Catcher".

STEM Energy Transformation Upcycled Toy Design Project: Challenge students to create a toy based on ENERGY TRANSFORMATIONS using upcycled or recycled materials. Clear, simple instructions lead to GREAT projects with students of diverse abilities! Students can use whatever they have at home to design their toy, so it doubles as an upcycling project, as well. Past projects made out of simple upcycled supplies include a musical instrument made out of a toilet paper roll and elastics, a propeller boat made out if a water bottle, elastics and plastic spoons, and a helicopter toy made entirely out of free paint mixing sticks. This is a fun one, for sure!
