This Forms of Energy poster is designed to aide students in understanding that there are many forms of energy that can be used in various ways. Energy can also be transformed from one form to another. The Texas TEK is listed within the poster
In this activity, students identify the difference in temperature between two objects by identifying one as the hotter and one as the colder. Then, they draw an arrow to indicate the flow of thermal energy between the two objects. Finally, they answer
This text is a mini experiment that students can do in the classroom to illustrate how thermal energy works. I would use this in the middle of a unit on energy after students have some knowledge on the types of energy.
