Different Types and Sources of Energy Subject: To understand that there are different types and sources of energy Next Gen Science Standard: Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
What do you think energy is? Allow the students to answer. Today, we are going to be talking about energy. Energy is power that comes from a source and is used to provide light, heat or to work machines.
There are different kinds of energy and energy comes from different sources. One type of energy is kinetic ki-ne-tic energy and one type of energy is potential energy. Kinetic energy is energy that is in motion. A ball bouncing is using kinetic energy.

Energy can also come from the sun, wind, heat in the Earth, water and natural things like wood and corn. Energy comes from the sun is called solar energy. Solar panels soak up the sun and turn it into energy. Wind, energy and heat from the Earth are all caught and used to make energy. Wood, manure and corn can be burned and that is used to make energy. Energy is transferred from place to place and can then be used to produce motion, sound, heat or light. You are now going to look around the room and make a list of the different places where you see energy being transferred and producing something.
Does anyone have any questions?
Allow about 10 minutes for the students to make a list of places where energy is being transferred. Who would like to share the list that you made? Allow the students to answer and share.
