The Best of Energy Book, Grades 1/3.
Feliu, Tom; Lively, Lisa
Presented are 48 energy education lessons adapted from available materials and published in a standardized format. Intended for the lower elementary grades, these activities are grouped according to subject area which permits a teacher to present energy topics in connection with the subject with which he/she feels most comfortable. Lesson plans are keyed by energy "message," grade level, and time required; they include objectives, background information for the teacher, materials needed, references, and a step-by-step procedure. Several illustrations accompany each lesson. An additional "short on energy" section offers activities that take 15 minutes or less to complete. Also included are brief descriptions of energy-related children's books, curriculum materials, and films. (WB)
