Reflection: Students with Disabilities Energy Transfers - Section 2: Explore


Students with learning difficulties often have a hard time making connections between concepts.  In this lesson, I was asking students to make a connection between two forms of energy by explaining how one can change into another.  To do this, I provided them with an image that they would be able to identify.  The students were able to make the connection between chemical energy and mechanical, for example, by recognizing that chemical energy is food and mechanical energy is movement.  Both of the work samples indicate that the images were successful in representing familiar examples of forms of energy.

Objective: SWBAT understand that energy moves from one form to another

Big Idea: By understanding that energy changes forms, students will be able to explain their own examples of energy transformations through self-created diagrams.
