Energy Sort
Give students the Word document, in pairs or small groups. They cut out the statements (e.g. "Energy stored in one new AA battery", "Energy to make the human heart beat once") and try to put them in order of the amount of energy involved. The accompanying PowerPoint page reveals the correct order, along with the (approximate!) energies in Joules. I used this when introducing the idea of Joules to Year 7.
