# Energy and Forces - Lesson for Kindergarten, Chapter - Force and Interactions

In the "Energy and Forces" lesson, part of the Force and Interactions chapter within the Science unit, kindergarten students will embark on a fascinating journey to understand the basics of energy and forces. They will learn how the world around them is influenced by different types of forces, specifically focusing on the concepts of push and pull, through hands-on activities and engaging worksheets like "Pull or Push Worksheet" and "Down it Goes Worksheet."

By exploring these fundamental principles, students will develop an early understanding of how objects move or change direction due to applied forces. For instance, when they push a toy car, it moves forward, and when they pull it, it comes closer to them. This concept is not only foundational for their scientific knowledge but also enhances their curiosity about how things work in their everyday environment.

Understanding energy and forces at this age lays the groundwork for more complex physics concepts in later grades. It also encourages critical thinking, problem-solving, and observational skills as students experiment with different forces in interactive ways. Moreover, grasping these basic scientific principles is essential for nurturing informed, curious, and engaged future citizens who can apply this knowledge to real-world situations.

• ### Activity 2 / Pull or Push Worksheet

Physics is fun and involves actions your child observes and does each and every day! Intrigue your little learner with this fascinating physical science worksheet: Push or Pull.
Your child will love observing how everyday activities involve natural forces that push or pull objects!

• ### Activity 3 / Down it Goes Worksheet

This is a good chance to explain the concept of gravity to your child. And, what better way to do that than by using this colorful and fun worksheet. First, explain to your child that force can pull things down. Ask them if they can give you examples of things coming down with force. Then, show them this coloring sheet. Instruct them to circle the pictures that show objects moving down pulled by force.
