Potential & Kinetic Energy -- Roller Coaster...very cool...you have to sign in to download it, but it is free.

<p>This interactive roller coaster ride produced by WGBH illustrates the relationship between potential and kinetic energy. As the coaster cars go up and down the hills and around the loop of the track, a pie chart shows how energy is transformed back and forth between gravitational potential energy and kinetic energy.</p>

my students loved when I showed them this as an example of potential and kinetic energy

### Energy Task Cards - SCOOT - Potential - Kinetic - Transformations

I will start this by saying that I always thought that SCOOT was an activity for the younger kids (not that I've known about it for very l...

### 4th Grade Force, Energy, and Motion Assessment

Use this fourth grade force, energy, and motion assessment as a quiz, test, or for review! This assessment matches Virginia's Standards of Learning, SOL 4.2 completely. Answer sheets included!Vocabulary covered include: friction, heat, motion, inertia, speed, force, energy, gravity, potential energy, kinetic energy, mechanical energy, heat energy, chemical energy, solar energy, gravitational energy, and Isaac Newton.

### Build a Marble Run with Straws

Build a marble run with straws and a cardboard box - a great activity for a rainy day!

Gravitational & Potential Energy Diagram and great lesson

### Energy Poster Set - Kinetic - Potential - Transformations

And I should probably figure out how to take my otterbox off, since there's a hair in it

### Energy Poster Set - Kinetic - Potential - Transformations

Mad Science,Physical Science,Science Lessons,Teaching Science,Science Ideas,Gravitational Potential,Energy Transformation,6th Grade Science,Electrical Energy

This is a fun activity to add to your forces and motions unit. Students will not forget this hands on activity. The activities meet the *Next Generation Science Standards 3rd Grade Forces and Interactions, 4th Grade Energy, and 3rd, 4th, 5th Grade Science and Engineering Practices.In activity 1 students will complete an investigation following the scientific method to answer the question: Does the height of a marble affect the distance a cup will travel?
