The Big Ideas! Mechanical Energy

5A - recognize and demonstrate that objects and substances in motion have kinetic energy such as vibration of atoms, water flowing down a stream moving pebbles, and bowling balls knocking down pins

5B - demonstrate common forms of potential energy, including gravitational, elastic, and chemical, such as a ball on an inclined plane, springs and batteries

5D investigate the law of conservation of energy

Unit Planning - Mechanical Energy

Questions to ask:

  • Does the activity meet the intent of the standard?
  • Is there an opportunity for students to process?
  • Do students have the opportunity to read, write, listen, speak?
  • How do you know if all students are "getting it" each day? Formative Assessment
