Text: Using Electricity

Model: We've been doing many experiments involving the transfer of energy. While we're reading this book, I asked you to think about how energy moves from one place to another.

Active Engagement: I'd like you to list as many as many ways that energy transfers as you can.

Closure: Let's share the ways that you wrote about how energy transfers. Make sure that you read them to me in a complete sentence so that I can record your sentence.
