The Big E (Energy). 4-H Leader's Guide for Units 2 & 3.
Caldwell, William; And Others
This leader's guide is designed for units 2 and 3 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) to enjoy together the challenges and creativity of finding energy solutions. Goals for units 2 (ages 12-14) and 3 (ages 15-19) include finding ways to reduce utility bills, auditing home energy use for reduced fossil fuel consumption, exploring alternative energy resources (including energy conservation), making energy-wise food choices, monitoring transportation activities, and sharing energy ideas in the community. Included in the guide are instructions for its use, planning pages, and instructional strategies and background information for activities in members' booklets. (Author/JN)
