**This is the chapter slice "Mechanical Energy" from the full lesson plan "Energy"** Unlock the mysteries of energy! Energy is more than “the ability to do work”; we present these concepts in a way that makes them more accessible to students and easier to understand. The best way to understand energy is to first look at all the different kinds of energy including: What Is Energy, Mechanical Energy, Thermal, Sound Energy and Waves, as well as Light Energy. Our resource provides ready-to-use information and activities for remedial students using simplified language and vocabulary. We also explore other forms of potential energy, as well as how energy moves and changes. Written to grade and comprised of reading passages, student activities and color mini posters, our resource can be used effectively for your whole-class. All of our content meets the Common Core State Standards and are written to Bloom's Taxonomy and STEM initiatives.
