A set of resources for teaching energy aimed at upper primary or early secondary.

Lesson 1 covers: What is Energy? Why is it important? Different forms of Energy

Lesson 2 covers: Energy conservation and transformation/transfer of energy

There is an activity where pupils match energy examples to the form of energy and a worksheet for pupils to make their own transformation/transfer pathways.

You might find the following documents useful to support your understanding of how energy works:






  • 2-Energy-Lesson-2-Transfer---Transformation.pptx

  • Energy-Transformation-Pathways.ppt
  • 1-Energy-Lesson-1-Forms-of-Energy.pptx

    Lots of varied resources, but usefulness now limited because the language we use to teach energy at KS3 & 4 has changed radically - e.g. sources and pathways, not types, sound and light are mechanical and radiation pathways, etc., etc.
