What is Energy?

Energy is the ability to do work or make things happen. It is what makes things move, light up, and do different actions.

Generating Heat Energy:

We can generate heat energy by rubbing our palm together. When we rub our palms together quickly, it makes them warm, and that is because of the heat energy that is generated.
