This types of energy art project will get physical students thinking creatively as they review the different types of energy they have studied during their energy unit.
Students must draw a picture that contains at least one example of each type of energy that we discussed in Physical Science.
My students had to include the following types of energy:
- Gravitational Energy
- Thermal Energy
- Mechanical Energy
- Sound Energy
- Electrical Energy
- Nuclear Energy
- Radiant Energy
This art project led to some great discussions between my students as they tried to find examples of each type of energy that would work with the setting they had chosen for their picture.
Here are my students’ creations:
I can tell that the marble roller coaster activity we did stuck with students because there were lots of pictures including a roller coaster!
