This animated video explains all about force, work and energy using simple terms like pushing and pulling. The video uses real world examples using the point of view of small children going about their day and how various kinds of forces are used in day to day lives and how energy is used to perform work.
This video satisfies the K-PS2-1 and K-PS2-2 requirement for kindergarten proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
K-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
K-PS2-2. Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.
