Relationship Between Energy And Forces Science Games

In this series of games, your students will learn how forces transfer energy. The Relationship Between Energy And Forces learning objective — based on NGSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research.

Scroll down for a preview of this learning objective’s games and the concepts they drive home.

Concepts Covered

When two objects interact, they exert force on each other. A physical push or pull, like friction, is a contact force. A force where the objects do not touch each other, like gravity or magnetic attraction, is a non-contact force.

During these interactions, energy can be transferred to or from an object in many forms. These interactions include physical collisions, as well as motions within gravitational, electric, and magnetic force fields.

When force is exerted and energy is transferred, the objects undergo a change. This can be a change in position, speed, direction, shape, or temperature.

In total, there are eight games in this learning objective, including:

  • Little Newton in the Force of Energy
  • A Magnet for Battle
  • Energy & Force
  • Force and Energy2
  • Earth Defense
  • Final Approach: Energy And Forces
  • Stack and Rescue
  • AstroLab – Heal the World

A further preview of each game is below.

You can try the games within the learning objective for free on the Legends of Learning site with an account.
