This Urban Heat Islands: An Introduction to Energy Transfer and Transformation lesson plan also includes:
Elementary school physical scientists explore kinetic mechanical energy by dropping a golf ball on different surfaces. They discuss how human made materials might react to light differently from nature made materials. This lesson plan includes directions for the lab investigation as well as talking points for a lecture. Since no measurements are taken with the ball bounce activity, and the temperature activity is only discussed and not carried out, this standard lesson is not ideal.
