Energy can be transformed.
Students will be able to:
Energy is the ability or capacity to do work. Energy makes change possible. It is the power or ability to make things happen.
Energy is all around us. The 10 forms of energy are listed below:
The law of conservation of energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed but can be changed. When something happens, energy is transformed from one form to another. The energy input is the energy that goes into an object or system and the energy output is the energy that comes out. For example, electrical energy is the energy input to a lamp and light energy is the output. Depending on the light bulb used, thermal/heat energy may also be an energy output.
The activities in this lesson provide an opportunity to assess individual students and small groups on their ability to:
