Energy Transformations

Virtual School Program

  • All
  • Grade 5
  • Grade 6
A Science Educator wearing a lab coat presents a demonstration with leaf blower in one hand and a glowing light in the other.

Curriculum Connections:

Strand C : Matter and Energy
C2.6 explain how changes of state can occur when matter absorbs or releases thermal energy
Strand E : Earth and Space Systems
E1.1 analyse long-term impacts of human uses of energy and natural resources, on society and the environment, including climate change, and suggest ways to mitigate these impacts
E2.1 identify a variety of forms of energy, and describe how each form is used in everyday life
E2.2 demonstrate an understanding of the law of conservation of energy, including how energy cannot be created or destroyed but can only be transformed from one form to another
E2.3 describe how energy is stored as potential energy and transformed in a given device or system
E2.4 demonstrate an understanding that when energy is transformed from one form to another, some energy may dissipate into the environment in the form of heat, light, and/or sound energy
E2.5 identify renewable and non-renewable sources of energy
E2.6 explain how the use of energy derived from fossil fuels changes the composition of the atmosphere and how these changes contribute to climate change
Strand C : Matter and Energy
C1.1 assess the short- and long-term impacts of electrical energy generation technologies in Canada on society and the environment, including impacts on First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities, and on climate change
C2.3 identify materials that are good conductors of electric current and materials that are good insulators
C2.4 describe how technologies transform various forms of energy into electrical energy
C2.5 describe ways in which electrical energy is transformed into other forms of energy
Sensory Considerations

This program features moderate to loud noises and brief flashes of bright light.
