Part 1: Lesson 1

NO MATERIALS ARE REQUIRED FOR LESSON 1.
Review the types of energy: sound, electrical, magnetic, mechanical
(kinetic and potential), radiant, chemical, thermal and nuclear.
Note: Within the NGSS, many of these types of energy are covered earlier.
This lesson will serve either as a review or as an introduction.
