Grades

3–5, 6–8

Activity Type

  • Interactive Whiteboard Activities

Fossil Fuels

Do you ever wonder where gasoline comes from? Well, believe it or not, it started with plants and animals that lived millions of years ago!

Renewable Fuels

It takes a lot of energy to run the world. Some sources of energy will run out eventually, but others can be replaced. Do you know what those sources are?

Natural Resources

We humans definitely have a lot of needs, like shelter, food, and oxygen, just to name a few. It is a good thing the earth provides natural resources!

Electricity

Did you know that we get electricity from water, the sun, and even from wind? It can also be found in nature. Think static electricity.

Current Electricity and Electric Circuits

You might think of electricity as the thing lets you turn on the lights in your house. But do you know how electricity works? We will show you!

Magnetism

Did you ever wonder how magnets stick to your refrigerator? Here is a hint: If your refrigerator did not have iron in it, your magnets would not stick!

Heat

In the summer, it seems like there is way too much heat, and in the winter, you wish there were more! So where does it all come from, and where does it go?

Sound

Sound is more than just what you hear. Sound waves travel through the air, and they carry energy all over the place!

Light

Light is all around us, and we could not live without it. It also helps give our world all of its beautiful colors!

Light Absorption, Reflection, and Refraction

Thanks to light, we can see our faces in mirrors, and we can see colors everywhere! It all depends on how light hits the surfaces we see.
