    3) Mercury is a silver, shiny liquid at room temperature. It is used in some types of thermometers. Draw what you would observe if you placed blocks of aluminum, iron, lead, and gold into a pan of mercury.
    The aluminum, lead, and iron would all float in the mercury. Those blocks have densities that are all less than mercury. The gold block would sink because its density is greater than mercury.

    Take-Home Lab:
    Students took home a test tube with a lid, instructions, and a baggy. Have fun investigating common household liquids by looking up their densities and making a density tube. We made large density tubes in class, now students can make small ones in their test tubes. Or students could make large ones too with a vase, bowl, etc. Take a photo and email to me or bring the tube into class (carefully!). I can't wait to see your creations!!!

    Introduction-
    In this unit, you investigated energy, forces, and motion. You explored how energy is transformed-how it changes from one form to another-and you examined the nature of different forces. You analyzed the motion of a fan car, a mousetrap car, and a roller coaster car. You also learned how to graph data and draw conclusions from your observation.
    ...
    multiple-choice questions.
    ENERGY:
    Potential Energy (stored energy or energy of position)*
    Chemical
    Nuclear
    Stored Mechanical
    Gravitational Energy
    Kinetic Energy (energy of motion)*
    Radiant
    Mechanical
    Electrical
    Thermal
    Sound
    *lists from WindWise Education.org
    ALTERNATIVE ENERGY:
    Motion/Mechanical - energy which is "stored" and released with the movement of fluids- water or wind
    Tidal Power- uses ocean tides to generate power by wither using the moving water in the straits, mouths of rivers, or the entrances of bays or using a turbine to capture the energy generated by the difference in height between water at high tide and low tide. (gravitational potential energy)
