Potential and kinetic energy

Goal: generating ideas


Did you know that there is two types of energy? One is called potential and the other is kinetic energy.

A Newtons cradle shows these two types of energy. If you lift one of the balls up it is showing potential energy. You can not see this energy until it is transformed into kinetic. If you let it go it will show kinetic energy.



Did you know that there is two types of energy? One is called potential and the other is kinetic energy. Potential energy is stored energy that is ready to be used. Kinetic energy is moving energy like a ball being rolled down a hill. Now I'm going to tell you about them.


For example , a Newtons cradle shows these two types of energy. If you lift one of the balls up it is showing potential energy. You cannot see this energy until it is transformed into kinetic. If you let it go it will start moving and show kinetic energy.

There is always a opposite and equal reaction from every action, so the kinetic energy will run through the balls and it will cause an opposite reaction at the other side.

The life of sandy ( paragraph 3 )




Goal: generating ideas.


She felt a shiver up her spine. She was about to go back when she caught a glimpse of sparkles. She looked like she just won a lottery or she didn't have to buy any more groceries. What she saw was a POOL OF MARSHMALLOWS! SANDY jumped with joy and landed in the pool. Sandy would never go back to her own house because she had all the stuff that she needed. After a few hours someone knocked on the door. The door knob twisted and turned. The door opened up and there was a ginger bread man. He walks past the pool and into the kitchen. The ginger bread man must be blind, Sandy thought to her self. The ginger bread man opens a closet and gets out a box. He pulls out a knife and walks toward Sandy. "GET OUT OF MY HOUSE" yells the ginger bread man. He throws the knife at Sandy, Sandy ducks and farts out RAINBOWS. She blasts up into the air and crashes into the roof. She lands out of the house in front of the door. The ginger bread man looks at her and LOCKS the door. Sandy falls to the ground and starts crying.

The arrival ( chapter 2 )

Goal: generating ideas


CHAPTER 2
The arrival

 "Ah", says Bob thunderously, tripping over a lone cord, flying in the air landing on Manny's coffee. Brown liquid dribbling down the side of the mug finding it's way to the control system. ZzzrRzrrz. Lasers coming out,  sirens start beeping, everyone starts talking at one time. 
"QUEIT!" Manny yelled feeling distressed as he stamped his feet. 
"Now, listen."  "We're going inside the tornado, it's the only way in." "Fingers crossed everyone, we're going in."
The jet loses it's control as it swirls into the tornado. Glass flys every where. Creek, Metal peels of the side of the flying jet. The jet start's doing tricks like back flips as it falls.
 "Manny ordered the landing gear engaged so James grabbed hold of the lever, but it was too late. BANG! They hit the ground solid. "
"Ah" my leg said James feeling sore.
"Toughen up" Manny said.
  Manny punched a hole in the roof so they could get out. 
"We are now at the king MONSTERS entrance to his lair ." 
There was a big red door losing all it's colour. The door was so big, if you were 7 meters away from it you couldn't see all of it. 
"Now, we just need to find where the door knob is" said Manny. 
"It's way up there" Bob said.
"Then we just need to reach it, but how?
"Why don't we do this James said as he pushed a small door beside the huge one. 
Sure, why not.
"Follow my feet". 
As they walked inside Manny looked at his arms not knowing that he was invisible.
"Holy cow!!" 
"Shhh." "We're gonna get caught by the king of Monsters if you don't shut up." "Just keep on walking." 
The lair had bones and wood with smashed cars stacked upon each other for a boundary. 
"HOPEFULLY MY PLAN WORKS THIS TIME!" Boomed a big voice.
"I think  that was the king of monsters," said Manny who was still invisible. 
"Don't get distracted" they said.
"Let's go over to it,"  BUT... Bob still hasn't learnt his lesson from tripping over in the science lab. He catapults in the air over a pile of  wood and bones .
Thud, he fell on a good solid piece of dirt. The king of monsters turns around...
