Energy Lesson Plan for Heat, Light, and Sound

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!!!!

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.
