About

Students diagram energy transformations that take place with energy technology to demonstrate the law of conservation of energy.
Students begin this unit of study by brainstorming and analyzing a list of ways we use energy. Students create a concept map to review the different forms of energy and the law of conservation of energy. They demonstrate understanding of these concepts by diagramming and explaining the energy transformations that take place during the use of energy technology such as solar panels and power plants.

Key objectives for students
Understand how energy is relevant to their lives
Classify forms of energy as potential or kinetic
Understand how the law of conservation of energy applies to energy technology
Analyze examples of energy transformation
