The left side shows a notes booklet from an intro powerpoint. The right shows cards that have the forms of energy associated with each listed.
The left side shows sound vocabulary. The right side shows types of sound waves. Students identify the Big Idea at the bottom of each page.
I love this activity! After students practice sending and receiving morse code online, they form their own messages and identify how they can use Morse Code.
The left side shows the different effects of light and heat from the sun. The right side shows convection, conduction, and radiation. Symbols for each are drawn at the bottom of the page.
Students explore how light behaves with different materials. The right side shows notes for new vocabulary. Students go back to the left side to write more about their observations using their new vocabulary.
Students explore light energy by shining a flashlight on foil, black paper, and through a lens. Then, the right side shows notes for new vocabulary. Students go back to the left side to write more about their observations using the new vocabulary. The revisiting of the page is shown on post-its.
The left side has notes before and during an observation of reflection and refraction. Students also watch a StudyJams video on light. The right side shows a sample I Learned page.
Circuits Vocabulary Intro from Hands-On Science Vocabulary Instruction
Students use available materials to make a closed circuit that lights up a bulb. Then, they take notes on four new vocabulary terms. Finally, they revisit the page and label the picture using their new vocabulary.
For the left side, students practice with open and closed circuits. Using a switch, 2 light bulbs, a battery, and wire, they explore what happens when wires and switches are not connected. Students draw one of their circuits and use an “X” post-it to show where they removed the wire to create an open circuit. In the fold-up, they use their experiences to describe open and closed circuits.
On the right side, students make a simple circuit and explore how electrical energy can change to produce light, sound, mechanical, and thermal energy. In the fold-up they draw and describe each circuit.
After creating actual parallel and series circuits in class, students cut out the pieces and show how a series circuit is connected and how a parallel circuit is completed. Use the “X” post-it from the Open and Closed Circuit lesson to show how changes to the circuit can cause the current to stop flowing. I recommend following up by having students draw a different example of how each type of circuit can be made.
Students test different materials to find out if they conduct or insulate electricity. The right page shows a Venn Diagram of conductors and insulators.
Students complete an electromagnets investigation testing how the number of coils around the nail affects the strength of the electromagnet. The right side shows an illustration of both with the conclusion.
These are two of nine differentiated station activities that students complete to reinforce and extend their learning of energy.
Mini-charts are helpful tools for absent students and students who need additional support. There are so many ways to use them!
