Philadelphia Electric Co., PA. Energy Education Advisory Council.
This collection of instructional materials for energy education in the elementary classroom includes a teacher's guide, a student workbook, and three filmstrip/cassette-tape programs. These materials are designed to introduce children, in an interdisciplinary fashion, to energy issues and to show them what energy is, where it comes from, and what we can do about the energy crisis. The student workbook contains lessons centering on a specific topic. Each lesson begins with a section that reviews the previous one. Each lesson ends with vocabulary words, both scientific and non-scientific, the student needs to know to understand the lesson. A set of energy activities to enable the student to have hands-on laboratory experiences to clarify concepts is included. The teacher's guide contains the lessons of the student workbook plus answers, teaching suggestions and other helpful information. These materials are organized into units entitled: (1) Energy - What Is It?; (2) Energy - Where Does it Come From?; and (3) The Energy Crisis. There is one filmstrip program for each unit. The filmstrip programs reiterate the concepts of the units. (MR)
