Forms of Energy (Introduction)
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Energy is power - the ability to do work. Parents, teachers, and babysitters often feel drained of energy as they chase young bundles of energy - kids! But, energy is not just the ability of a person to move, work, or play. Every time you see something move - the wind, water, cars, clocks, animals, and more - you are seeing energy in action! All movement takes energy.
 
2     Energy makes your remote control cars, radios, video games, and computers work. Energy makes plants and animals grow. It takes energy to cook a meal or read a book! We use energy every day.
 
3     Nothing can run well on an empty tank, not cars or planes or even our bodies! We need fuel so that we will have the energy to work and play. Our fuel is food. Food is where we get our energy. The amount of energy in food is measured in calories [CAL-uh-reez]. We take in calories by eating and drinking, and we use calories for everything our bodies do, especially moving. The more we move, the more calories we burn. Your body even burns calories when you are asleep. It needs energy to keep your heart pumping and your lungs breathing.
