This publication is an energy curriculum for grades 7 through 9. In each of the six modules a number of activities are provided. The module titles are: (1) Energy: What is it About?; (2) Energy: Where Does it Go?; (3) Energy: Its Present Sources; (4) Energy: Policy and Prospects; (5) Energy: Is There Another Way?; and (6) Energy: How Can I Help? Objectives, explanations of what to do, and teacher's notes are given for each activity. Where needed, diagrams, tables and other teaching aids are provided for direct copying. The types of activities range from simple lab experiments to group discussions. Other features of this publication include a bibliography, a list of possible audio-visual aids, and an attitude survey to help measure the effect of these energy education materials. This curriculum is designed to be an interdisciplinary and fairly complete energy education program which ultimately brings students to energy conserving lifestyles. However, teachers may easily adapt modules and activities to fit their own designs. (MR)
