Jude: Is very affirmative and wants to get things done.

1. Knows that there are different types of energy
2.Wants to know how different types of energy is made

Caroline: Good at technology.

1. Energy is what powers our devices.
2. I want to find out how energy is made

Amanda: Smart with access to research

1.energy can be channeled by solar panels and many other things.
2.wants to know the different amounts of energy that can be harnessed without breaking.

What are the different types of energy?


1. Chemical
2. Electrical
3. Radiant
4. Sound
5. Mechanical
6. Nuclear
7. Gravitational
8. Thermal
9. Motion

This is our Popplet:
ACJ energy Popple.

  • **
      • Does the skater hit the same height on the opposite sides of the track? (checkmark the "show grid" button to help you determine this). Why might this be the case? Yes, because potential will always be greater that kinetic.

    • Turn on energy Pie Chart and Bar Graph (you may need to move things around a little to see everything).
  • On the visual aids, what color represents potential energy? Blue
  • On the visual aids, what color represents kinetic energy? Green
  • When does the skater have the highest amount of potential energy? When going uphill.
  • When does the skater have the highest amount of kinetic energy? when going downhill
  • When does the skater have the lowest amount of potential energy? when going downhill
  • When does the skater have the lowest amount of kinetic energy?
  • Describe how the bar changes as the skater moves along the track.
  • How does the visual aid (pie chart, bar graph) help you better understand the impact of an objects position on it's energy
  • Consider how you would complete the following statement: At the top of a hill on the ride, most of the energy is and at the bottom of the hill, most of the energy is converted into ___.
