Description

This 3-week project-based learning (science-focused) research-based unit is the perfect way to teach reading, writing, research skills, and the scientific method in one engaging, real-world unit. Your students will use key standards, such as research, reading comprehension, and inquiry in a real-life scenario based on energy conversions. The best part about PBL is that student choice and differentiation are built in!

 

Driving Question: How can I design an experiment for my class to test a device that converts energy from one form to another?

 

NGSS Standards Covered:

  • NGSS.4-PS3-2: Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
  • NGSS.4-PS3-4: Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.

 

Students are challenged to design an experiment using the scientific method to test a device that can convert energy from one form to another.
