This unit looks at the various sources of energy. After studying the energy cycles of plants and animals we will now look at the sources of energy for the electricity we use everyday. We will also continue our conversations about recycling and conserving our resources as they affect our future. Chapter 6 in our Science book will guide us through the introduction. WE will also experiment with magnets and build electromagnetic motors!
