The causes of the energy crisis are many, and the solutions are complex. Since every person in the world is affected, every person should have an understanding of the energy shortage problem. This unit is designed around the following two ideas: (1) to develop an understanding of energy and the need for it, and (2) to understand some of the causes, effects, and solutions of the energy crisis. It attempts to present information regarding energy problems for level II and III educable mentally retarded students. Included are four topics: (1) What Is Energy, (2) Energy Fuels, (3) How We Use Energy, and (4) Conservation of Energy. For each topic there are behavioral objectives, student activities, and teacher suggestions. The numbers in parentheses by the activity number indicate the objectives the activity helps develop. The unit also includes goals and objectives, an objective summary sheet, a unit time line, a materials sheet, and 20 appendixes which contain various teaching aids related to the activities and which are also suitable for duplication.
