Skateboarding and Kinetic Energy

Today we started chapter 3 in our Matter and Energy unit.  As a class we discussed the various types of energy, including potential and kinetic.  I showed the students a great website that simulates kinetic and potential energy via skateboarding.  Below is a screen shot of the site.  Click here to go to Energy Skate Park.  Who knew that students could have fun and learn at the same time?
