Sorry, but I did that class over 2 years ago, so I don't recall what was done in any specific lesson. We finished energy over 12 weeks ago. However, some positives from the class were using simple materials to demonstrate the conversion of energy. We used plastic tubes with rubber bands and pencils to demonstrate how potential energy is converted to kinetic energy. We also did the ice cream lab to demonstrate transfer of heat energy. The kids really loved that one! Hope this helps.

Subject: [Channel-talkenergy] Science in Focus: Energy
 
Still looking for someone to talk with about the class Science in Focus: Energy. I am writing today about session 2 and the information that I learned from it. I thought that it was interesting how we use the words; work, power,energy, and force in everyday conversations but never really think about the connection that the words have. Once it was pointed out to me that they would be connected, I thought about it more and decided that they can all be used to describe the process of work or the work that we do. I also found it interesting how similar adults and children defined what work is. Even the professional scientist used similar language in their descriptions of work as those of a child. Let me know your thoughts on the session. Hope to hear from someone.
