The No More Household Chores-Uses of Energy Invention Project from Ham It Up in Science is an awesome way to see how much your students understand the forms and uses of energy. Including sound, mechanical, electrical, light, and thermal energy.
I used this project with my 5th graders as an assessment to measure student understading of the uses of energy. The project also requires them to identify how energy is transformed from one form to another. Great way to differentiate among learning levels. Rigor through writing! Real world learning! STEM!
