Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Energy, Power and Their Units - Section 4: Explain


 This lesson always reminds me of the power of kinesthetic learning. Any lesson where we can employ multiple modalities to help students make meaning  is beneficial to their learning. The concepts of work, force, energy, and power and the derived units used to represent each  are challenging. In this lesson you can help students develop a conceptual understanding of what they mean through a physical activity that is fun, engaging, at times humorous, and uses simple materials in the classroom.
