The Fourth Grade is currently working on the unit, Energy Conversions.

This Unit includes four chapters. In the Energy Conversions unit, students take on the role of systems engineers for Ergstown, a fictional town that experiences frequent blackouts, the anchor phenomenon for the unit.

Chapter 1: What happened to the electrical system the night of the blackout?

Chapter 2: What makes the devices in Ergstown output or fail to output energy?

Chapter 3: Where does the electrical energy for the devices in Ergstown come from?

Chapter 4: How does energy get to the devices all over Ergstown?
