Energy Sort

We started out our energy study by taking a look at both things that move and various types of technology. Students were asked to sort the items into those that use electricity, those that use another kind of fuel, and those that use no fuel at all. This type of assessment activity is good for team building, and helps the children build their communication skills as they articulate why that have made a certain choice. It also informs my instruction, as we move forward into physical science activities.
