Energy Flow Diagrams

My physical science students are currently studying the different types of energy.  One of their in-class assignments was to draw an energy flow diagram for a specific scenario.  

This mini-project was sort of thrown together at the last moment, so it has the potential to be so much better.  It’s definitely on my list of “projects to flesh out” for next year’s physical science class.  Of course, I’m not even sure if I am teaching physical science next year.  I’m still waiting to hear if I passed my chemistry certification test that I took on President’s Day. 

Here is what my students came up with.
