Keep a Candle Burning Underwater! | - 1 views

    • Ashley Stewart
      4.1.2 "Investigate the variety of ways in which heat can be generated and moved from one place to another. Explain the direction the heat moved."

      This activity can be used with gifted students by allowing them to observe another candle burning in a bowl with no water present. The students can then compare and contrast the differences in the candles and the way in which they burn, and make inferences about why they believe the candles are different. This activity can be used with older age groups in the same way. The older students may be able to light their own candles as they work in groups, while still monitoring their progress.

      How cool is this! I definitely want to try it!
    Students watch a candle burn underwater, due to the quality of absorbing heat energy in this fun activity! Be sure to very closely supervise students.

      Extensions: Natural Science connects with History (Colonial Herbs)

      Adaptations: Gifted students can research herbs from the Colonial time period in history.  Students will then select an herb to grow from seed and document sunlight requirements and results.  ESL & Special Ed students can keep a journal of drawings that depict findings in experiment.

The Amazing Returning Rod | - 1 views

    • Amanda McCarthy
      Students who need help constructing the rod can work in pairs to complete it or the teacher can have a few already made for those students. ELL students can work with a native English speaker when constructing the item to make sure they understand the instructions. Students who have a good understanding of energy could write a paper about what they see and why it happens.
    In this activity, a metal rod can be made to roll back to you automatically when pushed away. This activity deals with stored energy. The students can construct their own metal rods.

      After the primary lesson students can extrapolate to real life devices and how they store energy to perform work.
    Students work to design a rubberband race car.

Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy: Bouncing Golf Balls - 1 views

    • William Templeton
      For a an extension to this activity students could drop the ball from three predetermined heights, record the height of the first bounce, and then predict the height of the first bounce for a fourth starting height.
    Use bouncing golf balls to understand the relationship between potential and kinetic energy.
