<p>This interactive roller coaster ride produced by WGBH illustrates the relationship between potential and kinetic energy. As the coaster cars go up and down the hills and around the loop of the track, a pie chart shows how energy is transformed back and forth between gravitational potential energy and kinetic energy.</p>
Use this fourth grade force, energy, and motion assessment as a quiz, test, or for review! This assessment matches Virginia's Standards of Learning, SOL 4.2 completely. Answer sheets included!Vocabulary covered include: friction, heat, motion, inertia, speed, force, energy, gravity, potential energy, kinetic energy, mechanical energy, heat energy, chemical energy, solar energy, gravitational energy, and Isaac Newton.
Exploring Gravitational Potential Energy and Work: Marble Roller Coasters
This is a fun activity to add to your forces and motions unit. Students will not forget this hands on activity. The activities meet the *Next Generation Science Standards 3rd Grade Forces and Interactions, 4th Grade Energy, and 3rd, 4th, 5th Grade Science and Engineering Practices.In activity 1 students will complete an investigation following the scientific method to answer the question: Does the height of a marble affect the distance a cup will travel?

Kinetic and Gravitational Potential Energy - 7 Engaging Lab Station Activities
This fully editable Lab Station Activity on Kinetic and Gravitational Potential Energy is meant to get your kids out of their seats and engaged in the content. Each station not only offers a unique opportunity to test your students knowledge but also provides a fantastic learning opportunity where your kids are learning through assessment.
Ms. BBZ: Energy Posters - I had SUCH a hard time finding resources that explained the types of energy (kinetic, potential, light, heat, motion, chemical, nuclear, gravitational) with kid-friendly language that wasn't too difficult or to easy. I made these posters to help!
