Our motion and energy studies continue. Today our students learned about potential and kinetic energy. They have built rubber band powered vehicles using Legos, and they are in the process of using Vernier motion sensors to measure the relationship of potential energy vs kinetic energy.
EY 4th and 5th graders will be studying motion and energy over the next few weeks. The first lesson today was very interactive. It helped students learn how to use the Vernier motion sensors, make observations, make metric measurements, and read data from graphs and charts.
