Energy: Movement, Changes, and Sources

Energy: Movement, Changes, and Sources

Grade 4 - Energy

In this Storyline, students develop an understanding of how energy in various forms moves from place to place, transfers from one object to another, and converts into other forms. Using the principles of energy transfer and conversion, students design circuits and carry out tests to ensure their circuits function as intended. Students also learn that people make use of natural resources to generate energy and come to recognize how the use of natural resources affects the environment.
