Energy Storage. Teachers Guide. Science Activities in Energy.
Jacobs, Mary Lynn, Ed.
Included in this science activities energy package for students in grades 4-10 are 12 activities related to energy storage. Each activity is outlined on the front and back of a single sheet and is introduced by a key question. Most of the activities can be completed in the classroom with materials readily available in any community. Among the questions introducing activities are: (1) Will water which is twice as high fall out of a container twice as far? (2) Which has more energy: one teaspoon of alcohol or one teaspoon of alcohol gel? (3) How far can a balloon rocket go on compressed air in one full balloon? (4) Will flashlight batteries that are twice as large last twice as long? (5) How much longer does a C-size battery last when it is turned on-and-off compared to continuous use? (6) Will rye flour cause a bigger boom than wheat flour? (7) Will a flywheel that goes twice as fast go twice as long? (8) Will a flywheel made of 3/4 inch plywood spin 3 times longer than one made of 1/4 inch plywood? and (9) Will a spool go twice as far if its rubber band motor has twice as many turns? (JN)
