Work and Energy - Lab Station Activity

An engaging teaching resource designed for high school physics students that focuses primarily on work, energy, forces, and friction. Its main goal is to facilitate active learning through interactive tasks.

Activity Overview

This resource offers a lab activity comprising multiple stations. Each station presents different testing methods such as:

  • Answering questions drawn from readings or videos.
  • Sharing personal opinions on specific topical issues.
  • Diagram creation activities.

The aim is to introduce students to different approaches to understanding and applying key concepts related to work and energy.

Included Activities:

  1. 'Research tasks': Utilizing devices or classroom computers for data gathering.
  2. 'Written expression': Elucidating thoughts on theoretical issues via written communication.
  3. 'Connect-the-Dot Readings': Merging theoretical concepts with practical real-life situations.
  4. 'Test Your Knowledge': A mixture of multiple-choice questions with requests for written explanations justifying the chosen answers.

To maximize class time efficiency, bonus word search or word scramble tasks have also been included which could serve as an additional source of marks when properly utilized. The ultimate objective ensuring every student finds something beneficial during the lesson without idle moments.

Ease of Preparation:

The resources are ready-to-use – simply print the cards provided in the download pack, place them around the classroom strategically for task initiation. An answer key provided within this package facilitates easy assessment.

Value Beyond the Lab:

The station cards extend beyond just lab activities – they can also be used as study materials before tests or quizzes to stimulate students' interest and improve retention and overall performance.


In a nutshell, for educators seeking versatile resources that focus not only on content, but on delivery methods that cater to all types of learners, Work and Energy - Lab Station Activity is certainly a resource worth considering.
