Transfer of Motion Energy Science Games
In this series of games, your students will learn energy is present whenever there are moving objects, sound, light, or heat. Transfer of Motion Energy 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.
Moving objects contain energy. The energy of motion is a kind of mechanical energy. Motion is the change in the position of an object. Speed is the rate at which an object changes its position. Energy can be moved from place to place by moving objects. When objects collide, energy is transferred from one object to the other, changing their motion. During a collision between objects, some energy is transferred to the surrounding air in the form of heat and sound.
Specific sounds may cause objects to move. Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only be transported and transferred between objects. Energy can be moved from place to place by sound. Sound transmits energy through vibrations in materials. Energy can be moved from place to place by light. Light transmits energy through electromagnetic waves. Heat transmits thermal energy from one place to another. Heat transmits thermal energy from one place to another. Sources of thermal energy include sunlight, friction, and fire.
