We began by introducing various forms of energy. Explored a little with potential and kinetic energy. Then concluded with electrical energy.
The students used a gizmo called circuit builder…they can demonstrate this at home, they used the electrical snap circuit kits, they made a jeopardy power point to review what they have learned, and they also constructed and electronic quiz. Their light would go on if they touched the wires to their correct answers.
