Activity Overview


Energy is conserved, meaning that energy cannot be created or destroyed through energy transfers. However, the type of energy may be changed during the transfer. In this activity, students will create energy transfer diagrams for three types of energy input using a chart layout. They will identify the energy input and also both the useful and wasted energies.

For students that need some more support with energy transfers, just have them identify the input energy and the useful output energy. As an extension, stretch your more advanced students by getting them to research values for input and output energies and create a Sankey diagram in another column.
