Reinforce science vocabulary with an energy and electricity crossword puzzle.
Energy and Electricity Worksheet
Do your students know the different forms of energy? You may have taught them the acronym “MELTS” as a way to remember the different types: mechanical, electrical, light, thermal, and sound. Teach Starter has created a crossword puzzle to help your students with vocabulary terms associated with forms of energy and electricity.

An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!

In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:

- Whole-class review (via smartboard)
If students need a bit of a challenge, encourage them to create a comic or infographic using the words from the crossword puzzle.
