Students in Mrs. Lytle's 5th grade class moved to the hall to find out what Potential energy is all about. They have spent several class periods building and manipulating vehicles they made from K'nex pieces. They then wound the cars up with rubber bands to see potential energy become kinetic energy. They also tested them out on the carpeted flooring in the room so they could see the effects of friction. What a great lesson and students were very engaged!
