Objectives: Students will be able to identify the different forms of energy. Students will understand the relationship between light and heat and how one form of energy can change into another form.
Unit 2 includes 7 days of science lesson plans!
- Day 1: Forms of Energy
- Day 2: Mechanical Energy
- Day 3: Light Energy
- Day 4: Heat Energy
- Day 5: Lab Activity
- Day 6: Review with Passage and Crossword Puzzle
- Day 7: Unit Assessment
Each daily lesson and its resources are color coded making it easy to know what to use each day.
Day 1: Forms of Energy
You are full of energy! What does this actually mean? Discover the different forms of energy and how we interact with them in our every day lives.
Day 2: Mechanical Energy
Guide your students to the mechanics of kinetic and potential energy. Students will discover the different energies and how they quickly change forms.
Day 3: Light Energy
Did you know that objects can make light bend, bounce, or take it in? Get ready to shed some light on the this subject and discover how light travels and what happens when things interfere.
Day 4: Heat Energy
The heat is on! This lesson will heat up a discussion about how heat in science transfers. Understand what really makes an object’s temperature increase and the relationship between light and heat.
Day 6: Lab Activity
Marble run! Get hands-on and put the Scientific Method to work with changing heights to increase potential and kinetic energy. Select three different heights and test it out to see which height gets the marble to the finish line the fastest!
Day 7: Review with Passage and Crossword Puzzle
Students will put together all of the vocabulary and skills acquired from this unit. Read the passage and answer the following questions. Vocabulary words are reviewed in a crossword puzzle.
Day 8: Unit Assessment
Give your students a chance to show what they have learned over the past six days.
