Science and Teaching for Field Instructors

You Are What You Eat

In this Matter and Energy Name Game, students learn each other’s names through a chant about energy and matter, then each dance in the spotlight when it’s their turn. It gives students a fun introduction to some words relating to matter and energy that the instructor can refer back to during later learning experiences. It also provides an opportunity for each student to feel “seen” at the beginning of a field experience.

Students will:
  • Learn each other’s names.
  • Have a moment in the “spotlight.”
  • Become familiar with the terms “matter” and “energy.”
