Procedure

Ask an adult to help you look around your home for items that have chemical energy stored in them (for example, batteries). On a sheet of paper, make a table that lists the items you found. For each item on your list, explain what the stored chemical energy will be used to do. For example, a battery in a flashlight will convert chemical energy into light. A remote-control car will use the energy to move, and so on.

Results

What other items can you think of around your community or school that have stored chemical energy? Did you find any examples that were not batteries?
