This resource guide from the Middle School Portal 2 project, written specifically for teachers, provides links to exemplary resources including background information, lessons, career information, and related national science education standards. This Wiki page about energy transfers and energy transformations features hand-selected online resources for middle school science teachers. An introduction notes the ubiquitous nature of energy movements and conversions and clarifies the difference between the transfer and the transformation of energy. Featured resources fall into two categories: background information and activities. Teaching tips and descriptions of each resource are offered. The audience (teacher or student) is noted for the background information resources. The activities are hands-on and are sorted under three content headings--energy transformations, potential and kinetic energy, and heat transfer.
