    What is an energy pyramid? What age level will you be teaching?

    I loved the race with oatmeal game. It taught that all of the oatmeal (energy) was still in the system ( on the playground) but it was not all useful. This will teach the loss of energy to heat and sound.

    I also loved the episode where they showed a class hitting a huge drum which caused soundwaves to knock an object off of a ledge. It went from kinetic energy (swinging the mallet) to mechanical energy (hitting the drum) to sound energy to mechanical energy (the object being pushed off the ledge) to kinetic (object falling).

    We did a unit observing the different energy transfers using the game "Mouse Trap" I took some photos of how we labeled the game. It was fun. Perhaps you could make a life size game. Ask me for the photos if you want them.

    Let us know what you do decide to do!

      Hello workshop pals. I am looking for some ideas about teaching a lesson on energy transfer through an energy pyramid. We have already made food chains and food webs. I would appreciate some hands-on activities. Thanks
