Lendsey, Jacqueline L.; And Others
This text, which focuses on coastal oil production, the countries and the people involved, is designed for use in upper elementary science, social studies, or math courses concerned with energy-related topics. The first half of the text is the Teacher's Guide. It presents an overview of the main ideas for each lesson, strategies for implementation, objectives, materials, and answer keys to student worksheets. The second half is the Student's Guide, including maps, graphs, worksheets, vocabulary, and articles to read. The unit introduces the methods by which oil is extracted from the Persian Gulf region and the Gulf of Mexico region. Transportation by super tankers, energy needs of the people of both regions, and oil production is discussed. A comparative approach to the people of each region stresses the diversity of cultures and is intended to expand children's views of culture. The interdependence of people and energy is emphasized.
