Identify different forms of energy with this cut and paste worksheet.

Do Your Students Know the Different Forms of Energy?

What are the different forms of energy? Your students may be learning about light, thermal (heat), and sound energy. This science worksheet will help your students differentiate between the different types of energy.

Students will cut apart the 12 different pictures at the bottom of the page. After determining the correct type of energy shown, students will glue the pictures into their correct locations. When students are finished, they can color in each of the pictures. 

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

For students who need a bit of a challenge, encourage them to think of additional examples of each type of energy. Students can also make a Venn diagram that lists examples of items that fit into more than one category.

For students who may need a bit of support, encourage students to look at each picture and determine if the object is used to make heat, light, or a sound. Additionally, invite students to reference anchor charts from previous lessons to support them with this worksheet.
