Energy is such a common notion. We talk about it all the time. Should you buy energy-efficient windows? The country needs an energy policy. That little kid at the store who screaming at the top of his lungs sure has a lot of energy. This chapter deals with recognizing and defining energy.

This series never fails to disappoint. If you are teaching something new, this gives easy-to-understand background information to solidify your foundational knowledge. It also sprinkles quick, little easy ideas to put into your classroom instruction.

This was a great book chapter! It gave some great information for the teacher to ensure solid content knowledge, but the activities in the book can also be posed to your class. You could use this as a hook to begin the unit on energy.

What I like about the Stop Faking It books is that it provides backgound for the teacher. In addition, the chapter provides simple activities that the teacher can engage in to help their knowledge and then have students engage in to help their knowledge. In addition, their are SciLink codes provided for the reader to get more information that is vetted.
