Sankey Diagram Card Sort
A great starter or plenary to your lesson. Slice and dice the cards into triangles, distribute and get students to find their perfect match. Designed to hammer home the concept of conservation of energy and a more general understanding of how Sankey diagrams work. Cards are specially designed so that multiple incorrect combinations will match physically, yet numerically only one solution is viable. As an extension students can calculate the efficiency of their device. A useful exit pass strategy.

8 Sankey diagrams are provided (2 x 80% efficiency, 2 x 60%, 2 x 25% and 2 x 40%) giving a total of 16 total cards.

ADDED EXTRAS: A set of 4 blank Sankey diagrams are provided (PDF) as well as an editable Word document to create or modify your own cards.
