1 Chapter 4 Forms of energy Introduction This chapter compromises a set of activities that focuses on the energy sources and conversion. The activities illustrate The concept and forms of energy; The different energy sources that we use; Energy usage in the home; The differences between renewable and non-renewable energy sources; The types of renewable resources The work sheets for the various activities are collated at the end of each chapter
2 Activity 4.1: The story of energy Study the picture showing the energy sources used throughout human history and then complete the tasks below. Tasks: Colour the drawing using the crayons and colour pencils provided and describe what the picture shows. What types of energy are being used?
