Kinetic and Potential Energy Lab Rotation

Unit 5: Energy
Lesson 5 of 11

Objective: Students will be able to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles, construct and interpret graphical displays of their data and construct, use, and present arguments to support a claim.

Big Idea: Students explore kinetic energy in a lab rotation by creating spool racers, creating 'craters' with marbles and flour, and measuring how different types of matter heat up at different rates!

Uncovering Student Ideas of Air Being Matter (1 of 2)
6th Grade Science » Matter
Big Idea: Just because you can't see it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist. This is especially true in science when learning about gases. Students will experience various examples of air acting on matter to support that it is matter!
