Force, Work and Energy for Kids

Published on August 28, 2022 by

Have you ever wondered, how we are able to move stuff around? We move stuff using force and energy. In this lesson, Andrew will define force and energy, using examples from everyday life. Energy is defined as the ability to move or do work. There are several types of energy which include chemical, electrical, light, and wind energy. Force is the push and pull of an object. We experience forces all around us, all the time. A lady pushing a land mower, an airplane pulling a banner, and a kid sliding down a slide due to gravity are all examples of forces.

The video satisfies the 4-PS3-3 requirement of fourth-grade science proficiency.

Students who demonstrate understanding can: 4-PS3-3. Ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide.
