This module focuses on conservation measures to gain energy. Students are asked to list various conservation measures they can make at home and in their personal transportation; from these they determine the gain associated with each measure. The students are also asked to consider conservation measures in terms of effect on lifestyle. An optional activity includes a publication of a newsletter for the community. One class period is required to implement the module. (Author/RE)
