Potential and Kinetic Energy Task Cards
This PDF includes 32 task cards that allow teachers to assess their students' knowledge of potential and kinetic energy (please see the extensive list of content that is covered below). A student answer sheet and teacher answer key are provided. An editable task card is included so that you can add your own task card question or task.

The following content/topics are included:

•classifying examples of potential and kinetic energy
•energy is the ability to move or cause changes in matter
•ways to increase an object's potential energy
•ways to increase an object's kinetic energy
•examples of kinetic energy being converted into potential energy
•various questions relating to a pendulum (greatest potential, greatest kinetic, position where potential and kinetic energy are equal)
•recognizing that when kinetic energy is high, potential energy is low
•using a data table of info, determine the amount of kinetic energy when potential energy and total energy are provided
•comparing how potential and kinetic energy are alike
