Energy and My Environment. Teachers' Guide, 6-8.
Brennan, Matthew J.; And Others
Energy activities and lesson plans for grades 6, 7, and 8 (grouped into seven units representing seven major conceptual schemes) are provided in this teachers' guide, with a unit at each grade level for each conceptual scheme. Conceptual schemes addressed include: (1) energy is the ability to do work; (2) energy comes from the sun; (3) energy can be changed from one form to another; (4) the sun is the earth's chief source of radiant energy; (5) people use energy to satisfy their needs; (6) energy supplies are limited; and (7) living things are interdependent with one another and with their environment. Each unit includes a pre-/post-test evaluation instrument, lesson plans, and supplemental activities. Lesson plans consist of a specific energy concept, objective, and instructional strategies for introducing, developing, and extending the lesson. Purpose, materials, and procedures are provided for each of the supplemental student activities. The guide begins with a brief introduction to teachers and statement of the energy policy for Florida and concludes with a list of key vocabulary words (Enerwords), bibliography, sources of energy information and teaching materials, and an evaluation sheet.
