Gillespie, Judith A.
The collection of materials is intended to provide for the needs of elementary school teachers who have needs for resources for energy education. The document is divided into three sections. The first section discusses human energy, energy use in home and school, and the relationship of the individual to the energy problem. A second section discusses the role of energy in the community, the consumer's role in energy production, and the existence of energy use patterns. The third section covers the production of energy, some approaches to solving energy problems, and the impact of energy decisions on the social and physical environment of the future. Each lesson includes suggested adaptations for grade level, language arts instruction, and mathematics instruction. (RE)
