K.E.E.P. - Kentucky's Energy Education Program Activities for the Classroom, K-6.
Theiss, Nancy Stearns, Ed.; And Others
Seventy-seven multidisciplinary activities for grades K-6 are contained in this revised edition of energy education lessons for Kentucky students. Section I introduces students to the topic of energy by emphasizing human interaction with the environment. It focuses on personal energy, food as the source of human energy, food chains, and the sun as the ultimate source of energy. Section II explores various types of energy sources available for human use and emphasizes renewable sources of energy. Students are encouraged to build and make workable models for demonstration. The last section focuses on ways in which people waste energy and the need to conserve and share limited natural resources. Each activity identifies the concept being taught, subject areas, materials, and procedure. Many indicate adaptations for other disciplines. The booklet is illustrated and contains student worksheets and a bibliography. (Author/DC)
