Learners moved one step ahead on understanding energy. A class discussion was done and learners were asked few questions. They reflected on their understanding about the term energy so far. Then they were introduced to states of energy i.e., potential energy and kinetic energy.
Learners were introduced to finding the perimeter of irregular shapes and were given sums based on the same.

UOI:- Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Going ahead with the discussion of energy, students were introduced to the two states of energy i.e “Kinetic” and “Potential” by explaining throughÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â objects like rubber band, torch, battery, ball, hand-made pendulum etc . We led the discussion further as how potential energy gets converted into kinetic and vice versa. This was led through the conversion of deriving the definition of Potential (Potential energy is the stored energy) and Kinetic energy (Energy in motion). This helped them to conceptualize that all objects whether living or non-living possess energy either in the potential or the kinetic state.
