This is a fast paced broken down lesson that is aimed at students for grades 3 - 9. This lesson covers the objectives:

  • I can describe what is meant by kinetic energy and how to calculate it.

  • I can calculate kinetic energy in exam style questions and in a practical situation.

  • I can re-arrange equations and apply ideas about kinetic energy to objects that move.

  1. The lesson has a jigsaw to start the lesson off to help students absorb key ideas.
  2. This gets copied in books after students have completed and lesson Objectives have been introduced.
  3. Has information to introduce students to what kinetic energy is.
  4. Modelling how to answer a question. (metacognition aspect).
