How does it work?
Wind (or moving air) is the energy that gets this windmill spinning.
We have used similar windmills in the primary classroom to engage students during science incursions on energy. Teachers, start by asking: what energy can we use to get this windmill spinning? Students might name muscle or wind energy. Continue: is the wind applying a pushing or pulling force to generate movement? Wind is one type of energy, how many other types of energy can you name (electrical, magnetic, sound, light, gravity, muscle etc.). What does energy do? Simply, it get things moving or going, or growing whenever there is movement energy is involved.
Perhaps have your students make basic windmills of there own using folded square paper, straws as the handle and pins and blue tak to hold them together.
- All about energy: what does it do, the different types of energy.
- Wind as a clean, green and renewable energy source.
- Wind turbines as an environmentally friendly alternative to generating electricity. Compare them to the traditional burning of fossil fuels to produce electricity.
- Force and movement.
