Power lesson and student activity package. This lesson package looks at Power, Watts, the Power Consumption of common appliances, Power Generation Stations and Horsepower. Within the lesson there are many opportunities for students to test their knowledge through “Check Your Understanding” slides with the teacher version containing the answers (these are generally problem-based questions like they would see on a test or quiz).
The PowerPoint contains diagrams, examples and explanations. It includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the PowerPoint), a student activity and a student lesson handout as a word document which follows the PowerPoint. I have used this lesson in my own classroom with great success.
Included in the package:
– The teacher version of the PowerPoint
– The student version of the PowerPoint
– Student power activity
– Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:
– The rate of doing work
– Power Generation Stations
– Check Your Understanding
The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
