Grade 1 Energy Unit: Kite-building 

Last week, the grade 1 students started their  Energy unit. In this unit, students learn about different kinds of energy, like electrical energy, solar power, natural gas, wind power, battery energy, and hydroelectric power. They also talked about energy use in each of the seasons and brainstormed how we can use it more efficiently. As part of this unit, Ms. Reed and Ms. White asked the kids to design, create, and test their own kites; a final follow-up activity asked students to identify the type of energy they used and how they could improve their designs.  Take a look at some of their creations!
