What do you think happens when you kick a ball? Join Professor Petri and Professor Pipette as they play a game of soccer to define collisions. A collision occurs when two things come in contact. Whenever two things collide, energy is transferred. So, the next time you play soccer, remember that the basic science that drives it is — energy transfer.
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.
