Energy education units (consisting of a general teacher's guide and nine units containing a wide variety of energy lessons, resources, learning aids, and bibliography) were developed for the Indiana Energy Education Program from existing energy education materials. The units were designed to serve as an entire curriculum, resource document, supplementary materials, or as a laboratory manual of "hands-on" activities which could be infused into existing grades 9-12 curricula. Unit VIII, focusing on energy measurement, consists of an introduction (rationale, unit objectives, general background information), three lessons, bibliography, and teacher evaluation form. Each lesson includes lesson title, objectives, background information, activities, evaluation techniques, and resources. Titles of lessons are: (1) The Bimetallic Robot; (2) Make Room(s) for Energy; and (3) A Do-It-Yourself Home Insulation Test. Students design, construct, and test their own thermostats in the first lesson, design and draw a house using energy conserving and energy conscious approaches in the second lesson, and complete an insulation audit in the third lesson.
