Potential and Kinetic Energy for Kids - YouTube

Potential and Kinetic Energy. The law of conservation of energy. Energy cannot be created. Energy cannot be destroyed.

This is a great sorting activity for students to practice reading examples of energy and deciding if it is an example of Potential or Kinetic Energy.  Students cut, sort and glue the examples of energy into the correct category. This can be used for guided or independent practice, or even a quiz or assessment.

Science Matters: potential and kinetic energy with jumping frogs

Have students fold origami jumping frogs using green index cards (the color really doesn’t matter, just makes it more fun).

Scientists define energy as the ability to get work done. This lesson free sheet explains the two states for which all energy exists: potential and kinetic.
