Caldwell, William; And Others
This guide is designed for leaders of the Nebraska 4-H Energy Project. The goals of the project are to: (1) help young people understand energy problems related to life styles; (2) use energy resources carefully; (3) guide members in choosing their own energy alternatives; and (4) enjoy together the challenges and creativity of finding energy solutions. Included in the guide are general strategies and information about the project and strategies for unit 1 (aimed at 9-11-year-old members). General strategies/information include hints for successful club meetings (work meetings, demonstrations, field trips, exhibits/fairs, and comments on evaluations and judging); characteristics of and general strategies for club members (9-11 year olds: grades 4-6 and 12-14 year-olds: grades 7-9); and lists of energy-related careers and publications to read for discussion, debate, demonstrations, and self-development. Provided specifically for unit 1 are objectives, background information, and instructional strategies for activities in the unit 1 member's booklet. These activities focus on fossil fuels, making an inventory of energy resources, draft detecting/fixing, energy for lighting, natural gas, testing for air leaks, and preparing and playing an energy game similar to frisbee. Strategies for preparing members for material in units 2 and 3 are also provided. (Author/JN)
