This lesson package reviews The Law of Conservation of Energy and Efficiency. The PowerPoint lesson package begins by introducing The Law of Conservation of Energy. It then moves onto Mechanical Energy, Other forms of energy, Energy efficiency as well as a sports application for conservation. 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) and a student lesson handout as a word document which follows the PowerPoint. The lesson also contains 2 videos embedded into the slides. Simply click on the image in slideshow mode and they will open automatically for you. 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
– 2 embedded videos
– Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:
– The Law of Conservation of Energy
– Total Mechanical Energy
– Other Forms of Energy
– Energy Efficiency
– Sports Application
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.
