Energy and the Environment. Final Report, Volume II.
Lahart, David E., Ed.; Allen, Rodney F., Ed.
These self-contained energy units were developed by Florida teachers to help high school students better understand energy, energy conservation, and life-styles. The major objectives are to help students understand the science and technology of energy, make informed and fair judgments on energy options, make personal life-style commitments which are morally responsible, and prepare for participation opportunities in setting energy policy. The units contain easy to implement student activities which deal with conservation, fossil sources of energy, generating electric power, and life-styles. Teachers can integrate the activities into many subject areas including social studies, science, earth science, geography, reading, mathematics, and spelling. The activities are varied and involve students in classroom discussions, making collages, writing pamphlets on ways to conserve energy, drawing cartoons, doing mathematics exercises, constructing a model nuclear power station, and doing scientific experiments.
