This card sort is for practicing understanding of Kinetic and Potential Energy.
The card sort comes with 30 cards... 10 cards for three different situations in which kinetic and potential energy occur. One set of cards is for when a ball goes into the air and then comes back down, another set is for a pendulum that is moving back and forth, and last, a set for a rollercoaster car moving down its tracks and back up. Each card provides a picture and a question for students to figure out. The letter answer to the question is on the back of the card.
The great part about this card sort is that there are three envelope cut-outs provided for each kinetic/potential energy situation. These envelopes hold each set of cards and these envelopes can be glued into a page in the journal as shown in the picture above.
Each envelope has a face that shows the kinetic/potential energy situation and a fold over with a name to identify it with.
Using card stock paper for the cards works the best! Be sure to print cards two-sided! Let me know what you think! Thanks!
I have made three quizzes that can go with each card set. Check them out here:
