I team taught this lesson in a 3rd grade classroom and they had a wonderful time interacting with the centers and getting out of their seats to complete the activities. They create a lap book surrounding these three forms of energy and experience the forms through 3 student-led centers and 1 teacher-led center. This fosters independence within the students who can self-regulate their actions and handle their behavior to create a higher level of learning.

This is a great lesson! You are so awesome to share. I would even do this with 4th and 5th graders as a pre-assessment to determine prior knowledge and any misconceptions. Thank you!!!!

I love this lesson! I'm a student teacher teaching 3rd grade science and I would love to implement this lesson in my future classroom. I know for a fact that my students would enjoy it. Very student-centered and catered to students' interests.

What an awesome lesson! I teach 4th grade math and science and just finished our unit on energy forms. I had them complete table explorations and included objects they had to discuss within their table groups and classify which form of energy or energies it represented.

This is a great lesson! When lessons are hands on, students have so much fun and learn more effectively. This is something I would love do as a future teacher!
