THURSDAY FRIDAY TEKS 4.6AB 4.5CD TLW differentiate among forms of energy, including mechanical, sound, electrical, light, and heat/thermal. TLW know that energy exists in many forms and can be observed in cycles, patterns and systems 4.6 The student knows that energy exists in many forms and can be observed in cycles, patterns and systems. 2nd SW – Forms of Energy End of Lesson Evaluation Performance Indicator(s) Choose one form of energy to represent. Prepare a debate to convince classmates that the form of energy represented is the most useful. Explain the advantages it has over all other forms of energy.(4.6 A) Forms of Energy CSCOPE Lesson Located at http://drcash.pbworks.com/4th-Science 4.6A Differentiate among forms of energy, including mechanical, sound, electrical, light, and heat/thermal. 4.5C Demonstrate that electricity travels in a closed path, creating an electrical circuit, and explore an electromagnetic field. Differentiate Among Forms of Energy • mechanical • sound • electricity • light • heat/thermal Differentiate,Recognize Conductors + Insulators • insulators • wood • plastic • Styrofoam • conductors • metals Key Understanding : --- Energy comes in many different forms and each form has unique characteristics which allow it to be distinguished from the others. ---Substances can have either the ability to facilitate or inhibit energy transfer. ---Electricity travels in a closed path which creates an electrical circuit. ---A simple electrical circuit can create an electromagnetic field. ---When a force is applied to an object, the object is affected. Lesson Bridge**For this TEKS, reference 5th grade, Unit 02, Lesson 01 The Study of Energy Unit Overview/Quick Glance Engage: Use pgs. 4-5 Explore/Explain 1: (The Heat is On) Use pgs 5-6 Explore/Explain 2: (Sound Energy p.7-8) Explore/Explain 3: (Electrical Energy) Use pgs 9-10, add to these investigations the opportunity for students to test insulators when creating the circuits and help them make the connection between electrical conductors and insulators and heat/thermal conductors and insulators (which they have explored in the previous unit) Explore/Explain 4 : (Transformation) Use pgs 12-13) Explore/Explain 5/6: (Light Energy) Use pgs 13-17) Elaborate: Use pg 17 Evaluate: Performance Indicator Engage: Use pgs. 4-5 Use Powerpoint Engage: Use pgs. 4-5 Explore/Explain 1: (The Heat is On) Use pgs 5-6 Explore/Explain 1: (The Heat is On) Use pgs 5-6 Explore/Explain 2: (Sound Energy p.7-8) 4.5D Design an experiment to test the effect of force on an object such as a push or a pull, gravity, friction, or magnetism. 4.6B Differentiate between conductors and insulators. Demonstrate, Explore Electricity Including, but not limited to: • travels in a closed path • create an electrical circuit • explore and electromagnetic field Design Experiment: Effect of force on an object: • push or pull • gravity • friction • magnetism TEKS 4.6AB 4.5CD TEKS 4.6AB 4.5CD TLW differentiate among forms of energy, including mechanical, sound, electrical, light, and heat/thermal.
