Energy and Man's Environment Activity Guide: An Interdisciplinary Teacher's Guide to Energy and Environmental Activities, Section Five - Limits of Energy.
Jones, John, Ed.
This publication presents the activities pertaining to the fifth goal of this activity guide series. The activities in this publication relate to understanding nature and the natural limits to growth, personal consumption practices, and the social and technological implications of rapidly depleting the world's natural resources. These materials are appropriate for middle school and junior high school students. These activities, organized by objective under the concepts listed, are interdisciplinary and can be used in a variety of ways. The activities are simply ideas of things students can do to help them understand the concepts. It remains for the teacher to choose and implement these ideas as desired. Activities range from writing a story explaining what the earth's energy resources will be like by the year 2000 to role playing an election to illustrate how the class can get their views into the government. Some of these activities may be suitable for high school students as well. (MR)
