Natural Gas Energy Educational Kit.
American Gas Association, Arlington, VA. Educational Services.
Prepared by energy experts and educators to introduce middle school and high school students to natural gas and its role in our society, this kit is designed to be incorporated into existing science and social studies curricula. The materials and activities focus on the origin, discovery, production, delivery, and use of natural gas. The role of energy in our society is examined, and students are challenged to consider their role in America's energy future. Materials included in this kit are: (1) a teacher's guide which provides instructions for the use of the materials, basic information on natural gas, suggested supplemental projects, a glossary, and suggested resources for additional information; (2) a booklet, "Natural Gas Energy," that can be used as a reference source or a classroom text; (3) four copy masters to be reproduced for students which contain information and activities on the natural gas system, products of the natural gas well and their uses, the economics of natural gas, and careers in the natural gas industry; and (4) a two-part overhead transparency set that is the basic teaching aid for discussing the relationship of energy use to our nation's history. An educator's survey is included for evaluating the usefulness of the materials. (EM)
