5-E Model ESL Lesson

Title ESL: Elasticity, Stretching, and Launching Rubber Bands

Purpose/Rationale Allow for all students to interact with a physical form of

potential/stored energy in the form of rubber bands. The students
will be able to draw a connection between the deformation/stretch
of the rubber band and how far the rubber band flies.

how energy is transferred and transformed. Key concepts include
a) potential and kinetic energy;
b) mechanical, Potential, Spring.

Procedures for Teaching (numbered with time frame)

Engage (10 minutes) Hand out rubber bands and springs. Have students fill out venn
diagram showing similarities and differences between the two.

Comeback Can Demo

Show students the Can and have them predict what will
happen when you roll it across the table
Have them Roll the Can.
What Happened? Whats inside? Why?!
Allow for students to mess around with the can.

Explore (20 minutes) Pen and rubber band launching.

How far can you make the object go?
What is different about the springs/rubber bands?
Students will fill out table with data from spring and rubber band

Explain (10 minutes) Ask them how what they did with the Pens and rubber bands relate
to the Comeback Can.
Encourage and emphasize their usage of the words: Energy,
Stored Energy, Motion/Movement,

Which spring/rubber band could store the most energy? -> Potential

Elaborate (20 minutes) Ask the students again, what they think is inside the Comeback
Have them explain why they think this.
Diagrams/drawings of their ideas.
Show them.

Build comeback cans. Have them predict how the rubber bands will
affect the distance the comeback can travels.

Formative N/A

Summative Switch Up Rubber Bands inside the Can

Have them predict how the different rubber bands will
change the comeback can.
