Energy is governed by the law that states ‘energy is neither created nor destroyed, but changes from one form to another’. In this video, Caroline will demonstrate this law by using a basketball. Through this quick experiment students will learn that when a basketball bounces, some of its stored energy is lost as sound, heat, and vibrational energy.
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.
