Introduction to Energy

Transform the classroom with energy. Pupils learn about different types of energy and practice identifying the types in the first lesson of six in a solar versus wind energy unit. The class sees examples of how one type of energy can be transformed to another and identify the types of transformations shown in diagrams. The scholars work in pairs to experience the transformation of energy at several hands-on stations.
