|Title||Energy Skate Park Basics Lesson|
|Description||Lesson Objectives: 1. Students will be able to examine how an object’s potential and kinetic energy change as it moves and how an object’s total energy remains constant. 2. Students will be able to determine the variables that affect an object’s potential and kinetic energy. 3. Students will be able to Propose modifications to the Energy Skate Park Basics PhET simulation. Standards: TEKS Science: 6.2C-D, 6.8A-B; CCRS Science Standards: VIII-D1, VIII-D2 **Note:** The scripted version includes additional teacher resources, such as, background content, common misconceptions and a vocabulary list.
