Lesson: Fuel and Energy Conversions Science • 4th Grade
In this lesson, we will learn how to describe the storage of solar energy as fuel and the ways in which this energy is released and converted into other forms of energy through combustion.
Fill in the blanks: Batteries store energy that is used to produce an electric current, and we can use this energy in many devices.
