Type: Lesson/Unit Plan


In this lesson, students will study energy through the idea of energy transformations and conversions. They will do this by exploring some Internet resources as well as engaging in some hands-on activities. This investigation could be the beginning of a unit on energy. 

Content Standard(s):
SC2015 (2015)
Grade: 4
2 ) Plan and carry out investigations that explain transference of energy from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.

a. Provide evidence that heat can be produced in many ways (e.g., rubbing hands together, burning leaves) and can move from one object to another by conduction.

b. Demonstrate that different objects can absorb, reflect, and/or conduct energy.

c. Demonstrate that electric circuits require a complete loop through which an electric current can pass.
