Reflection: Real World Applications Energy in Real-Life Situations - Section 3: Personal Power Activity


I love the personal power activity because it allows students to connect the concepts they are learning about work, power and energy to things that they do everyday. When students can connect things to what they do in real life, it helps them to understand things better. With this activity, they can see that even just when you walk down the hallway you are doing work and producing kinetic energy. Students really like this activity because they get up and move and they can actually calculate work, power and energy from the data that they collected from walking down the hallway and up the stairs.
