1. What was the most surprising thing you learned about energy during this entire unit? Why was it surprising?
2. What was your favorite part of this energy unit? Why was it your favorite?
3. Where is energy found?
4. How would you define energy?
1. The most surprising thing that I learned was that energy is used almost everywhere. This surprised me because before we started the energy unit, I didn't even imagine how much energy is around us. We use energy in our lifestyle without even knowing it and that's what surprises me the most.
2. My favorite part of the energy unit was the Rube Goldberg project. This was my favorite part of the energy unit because I love making small tasks difficult. (I do it all the time to my parents) Not only that but this project really made my brain start to work and I also had a really great time doing this project.
3. Energy is found almost everywhere. There are many different forms of energy that can be found in different parts of the world which makes energy be found almost everywhere.
4. This is how I would define energy: energy get it's power from the use of physical and chemical resources. People use and need energy for example using energy for electricity or for heat.
My Rube Goldberg Project is designed to cut a piece of paper.
Below is an example of what a graphic organizer looks like and on the organizers, it's shows what kind of energy is being used.
"The numbers in this graphic organizer connect to the numbers in the drawing on the right."
I tried to make my Rube Goldberg project to be focused on making a small task difficult. In this case, the task I made difficult was cutting a piece of paper.
