Energy - 5th Grade

is the ability to cause changes in matter or states of matter.
Types of Energy
Kinetic energy
is the energy of motion.
Mechanical energy
is the energy of objects in motion
Thermal energy
is the movement of molecules in matter.
Electric energy
is the movement of electrons in matter.
Sound energy
is the motion of sound waves.
Light energy
is the movement of particles of light, called
Potential energy
is energy that is stored in matter
Chemical energy
is stored within the bonds of the atoms and molecules that make up a substance.
Breaking bonds in matter release this energy.
Chemical energy is a special type of potential energy
Gravitational potential energy
is stored in matter that is elevated from the surface.
What is energy?
What is kinetic energy?
List the 5 types of kinetic energy.
What is potential energy?
What is gravitational potential energy?
What is chemical energy?


Sometimes, atoms can gain or loose electrons (e-), gaining a
an electron makes you
negatively charged
one makes you
positively charged
You can lose electrons when you rub one object against another.
Opposite charges attract each other through
electric force.
Electric current
is the flow of electrons from a
to a
Electric Circuit
is any path along which electrons can move.
are materials that allow electrons to move freely.
Most conductors are metals like copper and aluminum.
is a material that will not allow electrons to move.
is a device that physically disconnects the path of the electrons.
Series circuits
provide a single path for electrons.
If one bulb burns out, the path will close for the second.
are materials that slow down the movement of electrons.
The filament in the light bulb is a resistor, and resistance produces heat.
Parallel circuits
provide a separate path for each bulb.
One bulb does not affect the other.
Magnetic fields
are created when an electric current flows: the stronger the current, the stronger the magnetic field.
How do you gain a charge?
What are the 2 different types of charges, and how do they interact with each other?
What is an electric current?
What is an electric circuit?
What are the parts of an electric circuit?
What is the difference between the 2 types of circuits?
How are magnetic fields formed?
