Help your young scientists’ minds come alive as they learn what energy is and how it is applied in their everyday lives. Written from a Christian, Bible-based point of view, the course goal is that children will gain a greater appreciation for the natural laws God organized upon this earth. Involving both interesting lessons and hands-on experiments, this is a must-have curriculum for your home school classroom. This 75-page unit is written as an introduction and overview of energy subjects. It is suggested as a prerequisite to the physics units in The Good & the Beautiful curriculum: Heat and Light, Sound, Gravity, Forces and Motion, Simple Machines, Electricity, and Magnetism (which are coming in the future). The unit also includes a 19-page extension for grades 7–8.
Lesson 1 – What Is Energy?
Lesson 2 – Atoms, Molecules, and Forms of Energy
Lesson 3 – Forms of Energy: Experiments
Lesson 4 – The Transfer of Energy
Lesson 5 – Potential and Kinetic Energy
Lesson 6 – Renewable and Non-Renewable Energy
